My company just switch to SVN (from CVS) recently. The switch is
still not completed and we are still in trial run. I think my
management will decide on SVN soon.

Our server is on DSL, 512K download, 256K upload, dynamic IP. We now
have 16 repositories out of 67 on SVN and our development teams
spread in Malaysia, China, Austria and Russia. Sometimes in Taiwan
and Hong Kong as well. 800+ revisions daily. The largest repository
is 12GB of source including revisions.

We have no problem with speed. Sometimes, we can have a quick coffee
and do some stretching during SVN access. :)

We are happy.

Best regards,
