May I express doubts about telco? :-) It looks like the Python 3 version is simply not running:
### telco ### Min: 0.810000 -> 0.010000: 81.00x faster Avg: 0.823600 -> 0.015200: 54.18x faster
I think the original explanation was cDecimal vs decimal.
Yes, the magnitude of the speedup looks correct. In an isolated benchmark with the large input file  I'm getting 30x speedup for telco.
