Debian worldwide mirror sites
Debian is distributed (mirrored) on hundreds of servers on the Internet. Using a nearby server will probably speed up your download, and also reduce the load on our central servers and on the Internet as a whole.
Debian mirrors can be primary and secondary. The definitions are as follows:
A primary mirror site has good bandwidth and is
syncing directly from Debian's internal syncproxy network.
Some primary mirrors have aliases of the form
ftp.<country>.debian.org so they are easier
to remember for users.
They usually carry all architectures.
A secondary mirror site may have restrictions on what they mirror (due to space restrictions). Just because a site is secondary doesn't necessarily mean it'll be any slower or less up to date than a primary site. In fact, a secondary mirror that carries your architecture and is closer to you as the user and, therefore, faster, is almost always preferable to a primary that is farther away.
Use the site closest to you for the fastest downloads possible whether it is a primary or secondary site. The program netselect can be used to determine the site with the least latency; use a download program such as wget or rsync for determining the site with the most throughput. Note that geographic proximity often isn't the most important factor for determining which machine will serve you best.
If your system moves around a lot, you may be best served by a "mirror"
that is backed by a global CDN.
The Debian project maintains
deb.debian.org for this
purpose and you can use this in your apt sources.list — consult
the service's website for details.
