I'm having a real trouble when I try to update my kde 4.1,opensuse 11 desktop through yast(factory repository).
The download speed is about 1.5-3.0 kbps,another friend of mine has also mentioned this to me.

Is this a temporary server problem?,or should I expect this speed?.

If this is a permanent state then I can't see how kde 4.1 can flourish if people can't update it in reasonable time and therefore less bug reports will be submitted.

I would suggest to have some international mirrors for factory repositories,to ease the stress on main repository(I found that there are mirrors only for oss and non-oss ).
