This matches my experience. One of the CDNs we use at work does not
seem to pre-replicate content world-wide (which is not too surprising,
I suspect this would be a poor trade-off for them), so when I download
an obscure package that none of our customers in close network
proximity to me has downloaded yet from the same CDN node, I get
relatively poor download rates. Subsequent downloads of the same
package are faster, but performance is still not quite comparable to
local community-provided package mirrors.
