yes, and that is why statistics of mirrors are meaningsless

because of this fact my idea to give us a config-option
"dear yum, if the selected mirror provides lower than
500 KB/sek try another one because my line can 12 MB/sec"

keep also in mind that a usually fast mirror may have too
much load and that is why he is so slow - one reason more
to switch ASAP to another one
