When I first tried downloading from the ebi site, I was only seeing 2-4K/sec,
and after two days I killed the download.  The next day I switched to the
Danish site and got transfers of 230-300K/sec and got the entire release in
one working day (last Wednesday, during normal business hours).  Try the
mirrors and see if your speed inproves.
