Need More Download Mirrors

Postby garda » Fri Jun 26, 2009 2:27 pm

Now this is utterly frustrating. I've been trying to retrieve Mint 7 Main ISO from various 'official' mirrors per the download page to no avail. Each server (be it FTP or HTTP) only allows me to download ca. 200-ish MB then it would stop giving me the rest of the bits (much less bytes).

So my question is does anyone know of other 'safe' download mirrors I can try out? Those located anywhere in Asia or Europe are preferable.

Lately , the only way I can download an ISO is with Bit Torrent.
My recent Bit Torrent download had me copying from 900 peers , but the download went reasonably fast.

Here's the latest update to my situation: One server I get the best luck with is HEANet (Ireland), but it ceased the download at 470MB.

My ISP caps Torrent bandwidth at 80Kb/s, so I'm seeing it a last resort.

That leads me to another question: is there a way to circumvent this ugly capping of Torrent ports?
