I have done a similar thing at NITD, you could have used rsync instead of
using wget. Take a look at the public mirrors that support rsync here
http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/publiclist/Fedora/11/i386/ . IITK mirror
does not support that, right now and the bandwidth for IITM is very less.

So choose any other mirror and just run this command

rsync -av <url to the directory to be copied> <path to the directory where
it has to be saved>
url is usually of this type rsync://ftp.iitm.ac.in/fedora.
Its better to use rsync because it can be put in cron to automatically
update the repositories.

Google about rsync.
