    That's for two reasons:
    - They don't want every single OP user downloading at once, their servers would start fail/deny a bunch of requests, or take inordinate times to download a (relatively) small update
    - They monitor crash/trouble stats, from the first "wave" of users that update, and if they increase dramatically, they'll investigate, and possibly fix an issue in the update package, before say the other 82% download (they will pause downloads in the meantime if they think the cause is significant).

    I personally don't think the VPN is a great way anyway. What if Canada got a "tweak" that's only local to Canada? It's unusual, but not unheard of (possibly more prevalent if you VPN to Germany, since the language uses different character sets, etc).
    Will it work, in almost all cases, yep. Have fun rolling back though, when it doesn't, and you're staring at a page of "hard to read" characters/phrases...

    It's not useless, or an excuse, I've managed download streams before, and it can be quite tricky.
    If you have an 85MB download, and you get 25 million users, you will crash a set of servers, or make it so most downloads start to fail, Denial Of Service is a VERY real thing.
    Really, DOS is managed by many, many IT departments, every day, it's the same reason you can only pull a very slow data signal from a busy cell tower; you have to parcel it out so that no one gets "starved" and falls off the tower (figuratively).

    if you want to go back to earlier versions u just have to download that update from Oneplus website and then place it in root of storage then to to recovery install local updates then flash it u will be on lower version of your choice .
    however if u r facing any issue its always recommended to factory reset after every update.

    This will vary, based on the data migration.
    Say, if the "Contacts" storage method changed, internally, going 4.7.4->4.7.6, and you rollback, it WON'T have a way to "back-convert" the storage, so it will wipe that part (or possibly all, based on dependencies).

    The bottom-line is, if you are going to rollback, or image of any kind, ALWAYS BACK UP DATA YOU CARE ABOUT.
    Really, this should be part of a daily process (backups), or at least weekly, regardless.
    That way, when your phone falls out the window of the car, you won't be wondering if you'll be able to get all the pictures, documents, whatever, you'll simply have the latest backup.

    its an app, you can downloaded form play store, and you will find many results, just download one with hogh rate.
    use Germany or Canda server to get the updates.
