Question Where are alternative FC2 mirrors for yum?


I work with yum to install and update packages.
It appears that the server is either slow or very busy, and also some package-headers are damaged, preventing the urgent install of gcc.
In /etc/yum.conf I have the default server:$releasever/$basearch/os/

Does anybody have a faster and reliable server-address, please share your little secret with me. I live in Western Europe...
Thanks in advance.

kind regards,
