Hi Everyone

I am little bit confused how a machine choose mirror (geo IP or
Fastestmirror Plugin). My Mirror http://mirrors.bd-servers.net/centos/
is a listed public mirror for Bangladesh. So I hope, we hope that
people from Bangladesh , at least which is directly connected with my
upstream provider will get my server in 'yum' or any other auto select
program. At least CentOS box in my datacenter should pickup my mirror.
Nop, no result.

See, I am updating package 'tzdata' package from the mirror server
itself, bellow is the output:

[root at bdserver-cloud-1 ~]# yum update tzdata
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * addons: ftp.monash.edu.au
 * base: mirror.usonyx.net
 * extras: mirror.primusdatacentre.com.au
 * updates: mirror.primusdatacentre.com.au
Setting up Update Process

--> Running transaction check
---> Package tzdata.i386 0:2010i-1.el5 set to be updated
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
< -- sniff other data -->

Anyone please tell me by default how my country's people can get high
speed CentOS update/Download from our server.
