The inconvenience for a high-bandwidth user of having to wait a little
longer for the update to complete is minor compared to someone on dialup
having to spend hours updating (or days, if they've just installed and
are unaware of yum-presto), or someone with bandwidth caps having to pay
for the download.  Besides, the high-bandwidth users can keep themselves
busy using the connection for something else while the update finishes.
 And even they might want to help reduce the load on the mirrors.
