Sounds nice to me. However, being in the same country is not necessarily
good enough; ftp.au.debian.org is absolutely shocking from here
(> 3 second pings), but apparently just fine if you're in the same city
or on the other backbone or something. I would be better off using
ftp.de.debian.org for example. On the other hand, mirror.aarnet.edu.au
is just great (< 120ms).
