I've been waiting for 12.04 for over 3 months, and now I can't find any mirrors to download it from.

Can somebody tell me which mirror they upgraded to 12.04 from?

No - not that mirror. that is my secret :) as it works so good and for me it is just down the road. Although for the first time ever, I saw it was terribly slow Thursday morning. But by late Thursday it was back to fast.

The best way to choose is to find the fastest. This only checks ping values but if you try it several times (often different times of day) you will get an idea of which servers will work best for you.

From update manager or synaptic. Click on settings, and under Ubuntu Software tab it has Download from. Choose other and in new window choose select best server.

Where you are located also plays a role. I'm in Pennsylvania and have generally good luck with M.I.T. or R.I.T's mirrors.
