All these institutes depend on the commercial service
providers for the 
bandwidth which is costly in spite of the discounts

Till such time ERNET is completely revived and made
stronger and is 
properly connected with NIXI at all NIXI nodes this
bandwidth crisis for 
the institutes shall continue.
The present approach can be to request service
providers like BSNL and 
VSNL to provide some mirrors as they have hardware and
bandwidth in plenty.

IIT - Madras hosts a mirror for debian for public use.
May they can be 
approached for fedora as well.
