"ENIAC ... was capable of 5,000 additions, 357 multiplications and 38 divisions in one second.
"UNIVAC 1 was ... faster with an addition time of 120 milliseconds, multiplication time of 1,800 milliseconds, and division time of 3,600 milliseconds."
So UNIVAC1 could manage 8.33 additions, 0.56 multiplications or 0.28 divisions per second? And this was faster? microseconds perhaps?

"Perhaps ... they are talking about transmissions." Or perhaps not. If they were talking of missing a previous transmission the three day delay in finding the signal they did get would be irrelevant. Yet the three day delay is what we are told here is important.
What am I missing?
Surely Google didn't set up in the UK because Page and Brin lived in California when they started it? If they'd been doing their PhDs here they'd have started the company here.
"it's [...] material that simultaneously holds off large voltage."
