Just to clarify - this is about the machines we use, the centos team.

mirror.centos.org runs off donated hardware, sitting in donated space, 
using only donated network. This also includes the webserver, the 
mailserver and almost everything inside *.centos.org. It costs the 
project nothing.

A direct fallout from the efforts by some of us in talking to and 
educating hosting companies about CentOS. Which reminds me, if you are a 
company with a few mb/sec link to spare and want to offer us something - 
dont bother with a financial donation, host a machine for us instead :)
