The ip address of the server is familar!
anyway it's zipworlds web server
I have control of a box co located there and I can verify there is
bandwidth available (well in australia anyway!)
download from mirror.aarnet.edu.au -> 700Kb a sec (bytes not bits)
download from the box to a box a newcastle uni -> 200Kb a sec
download overseas well depends on the location but usually like 150kb a
sec to zilch (depends)
so no wonder why it's faster
