In our country is only 3 mirrors at the moment (one them is on 100mbit, now a lot of home users have more...)

Ping not allways finds fastest mirror, but adding prefer to /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/fastestmirror.conf helps.
Today updated ~hundred servers, all of them used correct mirror, but updates was allways not from our country.
Yes now all things goes like it must be, so lets say it was temporary...
Thanks for attention.
