Downloading Xcode

Trials and tribulations. Now, if only Apple were fair in its European/US fileserver split:
UK
150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for Xcode_1.2_7K249.003.dmgpart.bin (30721280 bytes).
62% |**********************     | 18786 KB    7.02 KB/s    26:36 ETA
US
150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for Xcode_1.2_7K249.007.dmgpart.bin (30721280 bytes).
67% |************************   | 20181 KB   192.20 KB/s    00:51 ETA
And I'm in the bloody UK! I'll have finished the whole download from the US before 5% of it is done from the European download site.

What's up with that, eh?

Update: yikes! Fastest speed so far: 422.74 KB/s. Fat pipes.
