Just tried to reproduce this, it looks like speedtest-cli simply uses too small files. The effect shows clearly when downloading bigger files (like a Debian image or similar).

Thank you for your experiments! Are you able to reproduce your second test with the Ubuntu 12.04 instances? This is what we use at the moment without any problems.

Already tried that. The official Amazon NAT AMIs did perform equally or worse, and bigger instances up to m3.xlarge (see above) did not help either. I can live with downloads being slower through NAT, but 10 times slower seems quite a lot to me.

For the record, with the most recent version of boto you can also specify tags parameter on creation of the auto scaling group.
