Thank you for the offer, but I'm afraid your mirror might not be fast 
enough to be added to the mirrorlist. 100 Mbps is already at the lower 

In this particular case the actual download speed seems to peak at 
around 100 KB/sec, depending on where I'm testing from. We already have 
a few gigabit mirrors from India, and I'm afraid adding your mirror to 
the list would not really benefit CentOS users in India.

If you want to provide bandwidth for the project, I usually direct 
people to run a bittorrent seeder for the .iso images. This is suitable 
for lower bandwidth servers as well. This involves installing a 
bittorrent client, downloading some .torrent files from the "isos" 
directory and letting your client seed the bits to other bittorrent users.
