Should, yes. In reality it is not.

Hmm, I don't understand why. I have contacted local geant2 people and
university people for an

Do other mirror maintaners experience the same - that international connections
on eg. 10 gigabit geant2 lines are quite slow? I have a mirror speed test
program for pclinuxos that shows me that the max speed I ever get out
of international connections are about 40 Mbit/s, and generally these
mirrors have at least 1 gigabit connectivity and they are located on the
European research network.

I made some tests from my 2 servers with other Danish ISPs for the Aachen
