Are you downloading from local mirrors, or mirrors world-wide?
I've noticed that when I do yum updates, that it tends to select local
ones more likely than further away ones. I'm receiving an
Australianised mirror list, and it *usually* serves me fine, but not
Perhaps, you get supplied with a less than optimal set of mirrors, and
you want to hand select one or more good ones, and stick to just them.
Visit their websites, and directly download a large file, or two, to get
a feel for their responsiveness (starting to download promptly, and
whether downloads continue at a rapid rate).
