Hello,

lately I noticed that it takes to much time to update my system with
the latest packages.
I know about many users from my country, Israel, that are suffering
from the same problem.

I'm using openSUSE 11.0
I read about "openSUSE download redirector" (here :
http://en.opensuse.org/Build_Service/Redirector )
and I think the problem is that the Israeli's IPs are redirected to
mirrors with a relativity low score.
For example :

Mirrors for
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/STABLE:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.0/noarch/oxygen-icon-theme-4.0.4-27.13.noarch.rpm

Powered by MirrorBrain

Recommendation: Use a Metalink client for easier, more reliable, self
healing downloads.
The metalink for this file is:
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/STABLE:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.0/noarch/oxygen-icon-theme-4.0.4-27.13.noarch.rpm.metalink

This mirror list was made for client IP address: ***.***.***.***,
located in country IL.

Found 0 mirrors in the same country (IL):

Found 2 mirrors in other countries, but same continent (AS):

When I'm trying to download the package manually from
ftp://dispenser.yandex.net I get about 30 bits/sec
but when I use a different mirror that reside in a different continent
I get much better performance, about 100KB/sec

I think that this is related to the fact that the Israeli ISPs are
connected to USA and Europe providers.

Thank you,
Sagi.
