 As per Sabyasachi Bhoi's suggestion, I've tried cloning from github
instead of gerrit and download speed improved dramatically, from 90 to
600KBps. But this only works in my Windows user directory, not in
C:/sources as in the Wiki tutorial for building libreoffice! I have no idea
why the download speeds differ depending on directory! They're on the same
physical drive. Anyway, problem solved, I guess. Thanks for the replies.
