About two months ago I noticed a considerable slow-down of transfer 
rates to Sanyo University in Okayama. (It gets its feed through 
Okayama University.) It's so bad now that my Windoze machine at home 
with a 14.4 modem is considerably faster.

The only time I noticed a difference was when I downloaded a new 
Netscape to Sanyo via Kyushu University - that connection sustained a 
64kbs flow. Next time I see him I'll ask the sysadmin about it.
