The problem is that when there is something exciting happening, like a new release, the Mint servers get clobbered (too many people requesting downloads for the servers to handle smoothly.) Torrents can be a great solution which you might want to look into.

You might also find that things work better now. Clem posted on the blog that they just added a nice, new server to try to relieve the bottleneck.
