Downloading guide data

So I had some time to kill this afternoon and I decided to 'play' outside...err, try and find the eastern arc with my dish 500. I had tried a few other times to find the 61.5 with no success, but today I was able to locate it, along with the 72.5. Anyways, back to the topic. I was noticing when the receiver went to download the guide data it like blazed across the screen. If I had gone to the fridge to get a beer I probably would have missed it. The reason this was surprising is that when it downloads the guide from the western arc, it takes roughly 5-10 times the amount of time. Just wondering if anyone had any idea why. Not really pertinent to anything, just curious.

My first guess would be that since most locals are located for western arc customers there would be a whole lot less data to download on the eastern arc.
