I've no idea how Eircom will do it here, but it should be noted that there
is a contention ratio between you and the ISP in the UK with DSL (for home
users, normally 1:50). So if you're on an ISP with lots of RedHat users
and they are all downloading the newest ISO image, you could well find that
normal dialup is faster.
