Its pretty variable. We've got a few 100mbps box's - a few gigabit
machines - and a bunch in the middle. Also, lots of geo-holes : eg. we
dont have a .centos.org machine that is within 3 to 5 hops of anything
in Africa.

Add to that we have a pretty constant and consistent Chaos Monkey
situation going on in the network with random machines doing random
things at random points and .centos.org needing to run inspite of that.
