View Full Version : Which Ubuntu mirror do you use?

February 20th, 2010, 04:46 PM
I used to download my updates from the Ubuntu main server. But its just way too slow, dont know why but while updating it takes around 3-4 mins to check for updates, coz it actually downloads some stuff to check, around 5-6 MB of data.

but while updating from say a South African mirror, ubuntumirror.ac.za, the updates take place within a second.

any idea why this is so?

which mirror do you use?
