http://planet.openstreetmap.org/pbf/planet-141015.osm.pbf is 26GB, which 
looks normal to me.

The mirrors are that - mirrors, not export servers.

Before using the planet file, you can run Osmupdate[1] on it, which 
takes under an hour on most hardware and will give you an up to the hour 
version of the OpenStreetMap database.

We've never had planet exports generated daily. If you need a complete 
planet file every day, the standard means is to download one and then 
update it every day, which uses far less bandwidth than downloading a 
new one. This is what is done for taginfo, and what external services 
like OSRM do.
