A new mirror

#1 Postby timkb4cq » Tue May 23, 2017 10:01 pm

There is now a new mirror for the repositories and MX/antiX iso downloads located in Milan, Italy.
The address is it.mxrepo.com and it follows the same conventions for repository addresses as the other 3 mxrepo.com sites.
Hopefully this will make things a bit quicker for the users who recently lost the fast but short-lived German & French mirrors.
MSI 970A-G43 MB, AMD FX-6300 (six core), 16GB RAM, GeForce 730, Samsung 850 EVO 250GB SSD, Seagate Barracuda XT 3TB

If this is not going to disappear like the other ones I can add it to MX Repo Manager...

Came through, I selected the Italy mirror, all went smoothly and quickly.

Thanks to both of you.

Good news!. Tomorrow I'll test it.

Edit: Today I tested the Milan mirror. Worked like a charm. Speed here about the same than NL repo (but not metered).
A good investment.

Good to have this new mirror.
I just tested with Repo manager but it seems, as for Eselma, that the one from The Netherlands is still the fastest :happy:
