Reflector Slowdown

I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on an apparent correlation
between the number of people on a reflector and the speed of the video
from the people on that reflector. I've noticed on most of the refs I get
on that when there's one or two people on, the video from everyone is
pretty good, but as more people get on the ref, the vid goes downhill
fast. I know it's not just me, because I've heard others comment on it as
well. I talked to the reflector owner and he says the machine and
connection is very fast and it couldn't possibly be his reflector (of
course he'd say that). It's to the point where I don't even get on a
reflector if there's more than 7 people on it.
