It's not my friend. It seems to always pick the worst mirrors possible.
It shouldn't take 5 minutes to download 100k. In particular,
mirror.clarkson.edu always seems to top the list, and I can only seem to
get about 300bps sustained from them...

Mirrors need to be ranked by actual download rate, not whatever it is
yum-fastestmirror is doing. (It appears to be simply timing how long it
takes to connect()...)
