On my FC3 machine I get the same slowness occasionally while using "yum
update". If you press CTRL-C while yum is trying to download, it
cancels the connection and makes another connection to another mirror,
picking up right where it left off. I had to do CTTRL-C several times
once when each mirror was pretty slow until it finally found a fast one.
