Unless you want to do:


8) 8) 8)

Presumably it is less likely for a country the size of England to have
multiple mirrors as opposed to someplace like the US.  And to be really
silly, what happens if there is a Debian mirror in both San Diego and
LA?  (i.e. these are cities both in California)

All I'm trying to say is there are problems no matter what you do unless
you use something fairly arbitrary like ftp1.*.debian.org

However, I agree that I prefer ftp.ca.us.debian.org
