Well, we are on the swedish university network (SUNET), which also runs
ftp.sunet.se. That one has managed close to 7TB for one week (
http://ftp.sunet.se/statistik/ ). I don't think there would be any
problems even if we managed to fill that fast ethernet interface up (which
our current server can't do, it is too slow CPU-wise).

`woody-i386-3.raw' at 62695764 (9%) 17.3K/s eta:8h43m [Receiving data]

This also means it will take some more time than expected to get the
mirror up and running. My new guess is tomorrow. :)

Hope it works out for you. Until then you could try and redirect some
traffic to us for the debian part anyway. :)

It is a nice service to the world though.
