The reasoning behind the project not accepting new tier-1 mirrors is
that we need to be able to ensure that what the mirrors serve up is
correct, unadulterated and also made available at the right time when a
new release occurs.  Practically speaking that means we need to run the
official FTP servers on project-owned hardware under the control of the
project's own systems administration team.

While the project is not accepting any requests to become a new tier-1
mirror at this time, there is no problem with people creating their own
private mirrors.  Perhaps this would help your situation?

Although only achieving 10KB/s is going to put a damper on anyone's
attempt to download FreeBSD.
