Let's see.  5 GigaBytes (I'm assuming bytes, not bits) * 1024 = 5120
Megabytes per day times 8 equals 40960 Megabits per day.  Divide that by
86400 seconds in a day and you get 0.47Mbit/second.  That's not too bad at

Multiply that by 22 US HTTP mirrors and you get around 10Mbit for all US
mirrors put together.  I would have thought it would be more than that,
but I suppose it is possible.

Is my math correct?
