Wrong. Please see https://www.tug.org/texlive/quickinstall.html
Choosing a download host
It can take an hour or more to copy all the files, depending on the installation method. If you are downloading over the network, by default a nearby CTAN mirror is automatically chosen. If you have problems, it is good to choose a specific mirror and then run install-tl --location http://mirror.example.org/ctan/path/systems/texlive/tlnet instead of relying on the automatic redirection.
The script is already doing auto-detection of mirrors etc, only if you
pass in wrong URLs then there is not much one can do.
