The only way to thoroughly solve that problem is to provide your own
mirror (which by definition you have control over).

That really doesn't work without quite a bit of server-side
infrastructure that currently simply isn't in place.  Personally I'd
prefer MirrorBrain, but SHTDI and all that.

If you think you know which mirror is currently working (best) for you,
that file can easily be downloaded.
