Jason Gunthorpe claims ftp.debian.org averages 13 mbits/sec with lots of
bursts/peak traffic/etc up to 22 mbits/sec.
417GB is 3416064 megabits, divided by 86400 (seconds per day) is 39.537
We're only off by a factor of 3. We'll have to see how that ratio holds
on March 2nd when Debian 2.1 is released. :)
If you want to help it happen, you should write a thank-you letter to
Mindspring Enterprises in appreciation for the wonderful job they have
done hosting ftp.debian.org. They simply rule.
