This is the same whatever resolution your display is in and you do not need any more download except for the additional panoramas.
I have no problem to pan it at all during download. That is of course for the initial pano in this case as I do not use streamed loading for the other panos in the tour.
I never use that for special features with several panos in it.
And as it loads within 10 seconds you will of course never even think of trying to pan it before it is loaded.
The 360 cities example speed will depend very much on the browser display.
If you use an Explorer on a 768 pixels height the size of the pano will be less than 350 pixels so you will just load the 6 basic tiles of 512x512 which is just 300kb.
This loads of course very fast.

Pano2VR has it as standard option
FPP has it by using tiled QTVR
and KRpano can also do it with QTVR or with tiled cubefaces.
Tiled multiresolutionn is a completelly different case.
I get back to why that is not always working as it should.
