I would rather have mirrors doing the update closer by home but have
difficulties finding the mirrors which should do the same as the
standard setup. Is there an easy update/upgrade possible?


While http://download.opensuse.org is in openSUSE headquarter it redirects
your download to mirrors that are close to you. The only files that are not
redirected are related to download security, ie. those that make sure that you
receive correct files, and small files that is faster not to redirect.

Besides when redirecting to mirrors it is done using many factors that are not
available to us regular users, so it should be faster too.
