Given the amount of bandwidth it takes to keep a Fedora install up to
date, the jump from 700M to 1.4G is not that big, and on par with the
other bandwidth requirements of Fedora.

For the really network starved, there is netinst.iso where you start
with 200M~ and only download the specific packages you wish to install,
minimally about 200 packages.
