Having better ones would be nice...
We currently have 3 tier1 mirrors, 2 of them have only 100Mbit and the
third one only syncs once a day so is useless.

In asia, people in asia who want to provide a mirror have to sync from
the chinese one which only have 100Mbit and is not primary

In south america syncing from Europe is awful, and there is no up to
date mirror in US, so I doubt we get much mirrors in America if we
don't get proper primary one...
