That's good news about the use of the Danish site, and we will put more effort
into establishing more mirror sites at strategic network locations. We have had
over 150 sites now downloading the full release from EBI alone, about 600GB to
shift, and although we will soon improve our network connection further, it
will be important to get several accurate copies of releases (and updates) out
there to spread the load.
