I've tried a couple of those low cost vendors.

I would expect a usable opensuse mirror to provide multiple GBs/hr of
bandwidth minimum.

My experience is vendors of this type provide Hours / GB of bandwidth.
(ie. the reciprocal of what we need.)

Even SpiderOak whom opensuse is now partnering with in some way is
only offering about half a GB/hr of bandwidth or less. (I have 300GB+
at SpiderOak and it took weeks of 24hr/day traffic to get it there.)

I earlier used Dreamhost. It took several months to upload a similar
amount of data to them.


If several of these were used they would have a combined throughput of
several GB/hr. Think of it like using torrent, with one "seeder" the
throughput is low and the more you have the faster it gets.
