The "speed increase" is perceived, relative, so if you cache items one week you need a lot and the next week only access unique items that need to be retrieved (MISS) you will not see any speedups. Squid works best with a large chunk of memory since caching in RAM is n times faster compared to disk (I/O) so for instance browsing workstation + proxy being one and the same machine isn't the most performant setup. There's more than this but the essence is it's hard to say without details and statistics. Have a look at Onlamp's Eleven Metrics to Monitor for a Happy and Healthy Squid and the http://wiki.squid-cache.org/SquidFaq. Worth reading.
