CVS performance doesn't depend much on network bandwidth. The most
important factor is the filesystem performance of the CVS server.
That's why e.g. "anoncvs.netbsd.org" is equipped with enough memory
to keep the repository in the buffer cache. This reduces disk I/O to
a minium and helps performance a lot.

What are you really comparing? Are you comparing an update from e.g.
"anoncvs.netbsd.org" with an update from a local server?
