pkg mirrors extremely slow, why not use the ftp mirrors?

I'm on a gigabit connection in EU, using the "pkg0.bme.freebsd.org" is horrible:
[1/22] Fetching unibilium-2.1.0.txz: 100% 120 KiB 123.1kB/s 00:01
[2/22] Fetching tmux-3.0a_1.txz: 100% 305 KiB 312.1kB/s 00:01
[3/22] Fetching smartmontools-7.1.txz: 100% 444 KiB 454.6kB/s 00:01
[4/22] Fetching samba410-4.10.13.txz: 2% 840 KiB 49.2kB/s 01:18
But I get similar very low speeds on the other mirrors as well.
Why are not all the old http:.//ftp.*.freebsd.org mirrors used for pkg?
They are still all up and they are way faster!
