That's how much data my former high school's new website sends in order to show you a link to the old one.
Apparently they needed it because nicolet.k12.wi.us was too many letters for the poor little high schoolers to remember every time they needed to use their school email.
It seems they've never heard of redirects.

Why don't they just put the website at http://nicolet.us/ ? Nice and short and simple.

It's a "GoDaddy Instant Page" so I'd expect a lot of cruft in a generated page.

You should try visiting the Oracle website. After searching for "11g express edition" with the built-in search feature, I selected the smallest result (it helpfully provides the size of each result):

This 5KB page actually turned out to be 1269kB with a total of 1254kB transferred (34kB up, 1221kB down), which broke down to:
Four of the scripts were 0-byte files
Two requests were made for a nonexistent GIF which resulted in 404 errors
403kB CSSYow! No wonder even a fast connection is starting to feel sluggish.
