We are in the same rack at mirror.hosef.org, and over the last few years
we've gotten traffic from all over. It seems a fair exchange. I believe
discussion threads exist in the archives that address this concern via yum
for those who want to hard code their local mirror to the local clients they

If your mirror's traffic patterns remain similar to ours, and you continue
to mirror the same distros, you'll find the CentOS traffic is heaviest for
its ISO's and DVD's, but is still eclipsed by a few of the other distros we
host. For the bandwidth and hardware you have, it should not be a concern.
We have served more, with less, for some time now. The 4.x series is still
steadily sought.
