I performed a full rsync from a local mirror that was able to provide me a high speed link where the data transfer is free. In Canada I use Canarie which is for University research and instructional locations. This got me the data very quickly and cut costs.
I now have shell scripts which are called via cron every 4 hours to sync each of the distros that I mirror
I configured Apache, although it could have been nginx, cherokee or other.
I then notified the mirror list that the mirror was ready for public use.
I have as of now transferred 6.5TB of data to the greater world from this mirror in the past two months. :)
