You will have to be a little more specific than that.
What and who is this local linux distributors? Where can they be contacted?

Thanks for the list.

What I do is, I use FDM (Free Download Manager) and add a few extra mirrors manually from all the different sources to ensure that I get a full stable download speed, FDM connects then to the mirrors downloading from each, different parts. I hope this helps anyone who wants to max out their line.

YOu will be lucky to find a local link to that, it is not a mainstream distro so your best bet would be their site.

I found this the other day when I downloaded the latest Ubuntu. A worthwhile addition IMO: ftp://ftp.wa.co.za/pub/

Being a WebAfrica server, I wonder if they allow you to download from a WA account without affecting your cap, like their WAGE servers.

Go to the ftp site in your browser and download the distro you want, really no need for Filezilla if you ask me.
