This is a selfish point of view, nothing is important except the result
on your side.
But as I can see the results of such thing on distrib-coffee I can tell:
- often the bandwidth limititation is client side (eg you, with your DSL
connection, and not the mirror, with 100mbits/s or more)
- all mirrors have limit, and when the max connection will be reached
the mirror will stop serving you (download will be very faster !)
Of course, if in the case I don't blacklist mageia and deny download via
http/ftp to save my mirror (d-c is already under heavy load).
So, no, don't donwload several times from a mirror.
BTW: on distrib-coffee bandwidth is regulated by IP, not connection,
downloading 5 times will not be faster than 1.
