(If I may complain too, in France also the "download meta information" takes a good ten to fifteen seconds every time. I have a 1gbp/s optical fiber connection... downloading the whole qt sdk for a fast local mirror takes less time than it takes for updating these damn metadata, which also are updated sometimes twice when the maintenant tool also needs updating, for twice the frustration).

I can confirm, this is exactly what happened during an install this
afternoon, all the checksum files were very slow taking few of seconds
each, the archive files were initially very slow, but quickly ramped
up to 500 KiB/s.
This was what i saw in the install phase (was away during the meta
info download).
