If you have anything to share regarding bandwidth/download numbers, please tell me.
I hope you're not using Akamai for Brazil and South America... We (opensuse.c3sl.ufpr.br) could have easily transmitted several times more.
Also, mirrorbrain only sends us isos. There are two possibilities for this. The first is that opensuse almost doesn't have package updates, differently from other distros. The second is that it's sending the packages directly to the clients, since they're much smaller. In this case it's quite bad since clients will have to pull from Europe, which is probably a lot slower than pulling from us.
