Something has changed dramatically

The third transcontinental link (MIT77 <=> SRI51) came online about
two weeks ago. I noticed a serious DECREASE in performance just after
the link came up, but now I too am seeing a major performance
improvement (it's been a long time since I could FTP from MIT to
Stanford at noon on a Friday!).

My guess is that there were some initial tuning problems after the new
link came up; not too surprising given that this is a satellite bounce
instead of a land line.

Presumably somebody at BBN can give a more detailed report.
