TPC/IP protocols, it sends 32-byte (im pretty sure it is 32-bytes) packets of data back and forth.

Your IP address is 32 bytes but the average TCP/IP packet is 1500 bytes. The size of the packet you can recieve is controlled by the MTU (maximum transmission unit) key in the registry (for windows anyways). Sometimes backbone routers will use whats called jumbo frames when transfering video, this increases the size of the packet which will over transfer faster. Now there is also something called a window size which is the limit of the size of the packet the computer you are sending to can handle, you cant go past this limit otherwise you could run into problems. If you are interested in learning about how data is transfered over the internet i suggest you study the OSI model (make sure you understand ALL 7 layers).
