Will increase the syncing frequency to counter possibly timeouts.

Theres multiple groupings.. basically we give local users (South African
and areas attached via fat pipes) higher speeds (200KiloBytes and 10
Other ISP's and International fall into their own respective speed
If Im correct, International connections are capped at 8 KiloBytes and 4
concurrent connections.. ftp.is.co.za is predominantly there to keep ftp
traffic local by mirroring international content.
South Africa is *extremely* bandwidth starved (we have just over a
gigabit of international connectivity shared amongst the whole country)
The chap in .de with the GigE.. you have a whole countrys worth of
bandwidth at your disposal :o)
Joys of a monopoly telco!
