I'm also trying to upgrade my CentOS Stream 8 system, and am getting 
super slow download speeds when the initial metadata is being 
retrieved...  approx. 30kB/s.

I know on older CentOS systems, you could Ctrl-C and yum would move onto 
a different (hopefully faster) mirror, but now Ctrl-C just stops dnf 
altogether, and if I reissue the "dnf upgrade" command, it again slows 
down to a crawl.

Is there some setting for a minimum bandwidth threshold or some other 
way to diagnose some really slow mirror?
