>From personal experience of downloading EMBL (or more specifically just
downloading the plant sequences in EMBL) I would say that it will take a
*long* time if you try and download it during the day, during the week.
If you can schedule to try and download it at the weekend, it can make a
big difference and you *should* be able to download the entire database.

I think that database growth is still exceeding developments in bandwidth
though so this might get worse before it gets better.
