The mirroring system is tiered these days which helps save cost quite a
bit. A lot of work is done voluntarily as well. Fedora is intended to
remain always free as a community distribution. Red Hat is the primary
sponsor and doesn't directly profit by Fedora but via Red Hat Enterprise
Linux, a Fedora derivative.
