Ok, the sketch is of a spoked wheel with 3 spokes, for throughput, 
latency, and RPM, and the spoke for throughput is much longer. The 
circle represents the spoke of smallest radius, indicating the worst 
rating of the service. The ISP will try to sell based on the longest 
spoke to make itself look better than the actual user experience.

It's like taking the barrel illustration and "exploding" the barrel so 
its staves lie flat, radiating from the base. In that case, the shortest 
stave is the worst rating.
