Both freebsd-update and portsnap seem to be very fast for me at the moment.
It looks like we have update2 in the dns rotation (at least when I queried):
;; QUESTION SECTION:
;_http._tcp.update.freebsd.org. IN SRV
;; ANSWER SECTION:
_http._tcp.update.freebsd.org. 1707 IN SRV 1 25 80 update2.FreeBSD.org.

_http._tcp.update.freebsd.org. 1707 IN SRV 1 10 80 update3.FreeBSD.org.
