They mean equally soon/well/much/etc:

I will leave as soon as I am ready means that Departure and readiness will occur equally soon, i.e. at the same time.
I like sushi as well as sashimi means that I like both equally.
I get as much as 5000 yen a lesson means that my salary often equals 5000 yen a lesson.
