Usually the mirrors are all good, though something in the same country
or nearby is best. I do however recommend use of a download manager
(Firefox Downloadthemall) or wget, something that allows you to resume
the download.

Here's the one I used the other day, see the last part, it was the iweb

Can you look at the properties of the download and see if it lists the
true url, which has the mirror in it so we can report it/test it?
