Since the beginning of this years my download speeds especially from
novell are drastically lower. Before I mostly got around 1 MB/s. which
is the downlink capacity here. Now I found them using akamai (don't
know if they used that service before) and sometimes download crawls at
50 kB/s or is bouncing between e.g. 50 KB/s to 400 KB/s all the time.
Very seldom it's going up to 850 kB/s and more as it was almost usual
before. Unfortunately my internet connection at home is much slower,
due to cable length, so I can't really use that as a test.

Anybody else seeing similar behaviour? If not I will have to chase my
ISP, if they changed anything on the link.
