The minimum bandwidth for a fallback directory mirror is currently 500 kBps:
And if we have extra fallbacks, we choose the fastest ones.
We choose fast relays so clients can bootstrap quickly.

Next time we rebuild the list, your relay will probably not be chosen as a fallback.

But it's still helping the tor network.

Thanks for running a relay!
