Seems to work from here:

wget -qO - 
"http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=5&arch=x86_64&repo=os&cc=th" -6

Note the &cc=th parameter in the above URL, it can be used to override 
the GeoIP information. It's possible that the GeoIP database doesn't 
know about your IPv6 address.

However, the most likely explanation is that your mirror wasn't up to 
date when you tested, ie. new updates had just been published. If the 
mirror checker script detects this condition, the mirror will be dropped 
from the list until it is up to date again.
