Do you not already mirror anything in Fedora at all locally?  If not,
you may think about setting up rsync or something to do that onto a
local server/HD of some time, one that you can always have access to,
via http, ftp, nfs, etc.. You can then set it up to check however many
times a day/week/month you want so it's always up to do.  

It does make installs/upgrades/etc..a lot faster and you don't need
internet access while doing it.
