Fedora 18 - yum constantly timing out - culprit seems to be fastestmirror plugin

Did a yum update with Fedora 18 and got nothing but timeouts and 404 not found errors. 

yum clean metdata
     and
yum clean all
     and
(a reboot)

were all of no help.

However


yum --disableplugin=fastestmirror update


completely fixed the problem.

Trying other mirror.
