  I know that someone claimed (four years ago) they had slow ftp lines in
and out of Finland, so if that is overloaded at times, the network may get
slow. I have no idea if that is what is causing the problem though. Also,
sometimes ftp Sweden->UK seems slow, too. I think the Swedish network is
fast, though.
