Disclaimer: I have not yet tried it on Android (I'm still waiting for mine). But if anyone wants to test it I'm sure a lot of people would be interested in the results.
That's just page rendering speed. Doesn't change your internet speed at all. The OP talked about watching HD streams. Opera Turbo does not affect that. It only works for static web pages. It also does nothing for your download speeds.
