That is quite impressive.

The other question is - how many such mirrors are there at the moment 
that we could use at a similar tier. I know kernel.org have been great 
friends of the project, and they have machines spread around the 
world[1] - so if the are willing, we can use their setup. We would still 
need atleast a dozen or so more machines that can push at greater than 
400mbps on demand.
