I moved to xnet around 2 months ago and want to know if they have any other file servers (mainly linux mirrors) other that are local traffic or is recoil the only one?

Thanks Andrew

If anyone from WxC is reading this thread, I'd like to see a local debian mirror on xnet. The other other NZ options are ihug or citylink.

I must say that I like using citylink as the debian mirror... It's FAST.
I can exceed 850KB/s using that mirror :D
