I've found the problem to be intermittent. I'm typically pulling about 5-10
kB/s, but occasionally/rarely pull over 1MB/s.

I had at first assumed it was load on the server causing the problem,
because you can tell it's going to be a slow one when you get 75% through
the "compressing objects" stage of a git fetch, which is all on the server
AIUI, and it starts to crawl already.
