The paperwork has been submitted for a bandwidth upgrade - we are stepping up from a 300mbps connection to 400mbps! The site has been running well, so this move is a bit experimental - if anything, Portal submissions should download faster.
We were planning to hold off on our hardware upgrades until mid-September, but we are bumping up the launch of our new file server to this week! The remainder of the upgrades will still take place in September.
The bandwidth upgrade will finalize in the next 48 hours. We want to track a day of results with the new bandwidth and our old file server, before upgrading to the new file server. Hopefully you will see an improvement on your end! I'll post updates as changes are made.
