Still more than enough for a weekly update, right?
Of course, using delta would make things much faster and (if working
correctly) would be appreciated by both clients and mirrors.

Quite possible.

I have Fedora boxes connected with XX Mbps Ethernet, but since there
is no problem with my home 512 kbps DSL (previously 128 and 256), there
is none with these on Ethernet either.

ISDN/modem, i.e., dialup connection with per minute fee? Sure, that's
different story, the updates are just too expensive on that. BTW: I've
been using such dialups for years, before DSL and similar cheaper
services became available. The key word here is "price per minute",
not "speed".
