The locality of this CDN seems to be... not the best.
In Poland, there's 11 mirrors (according to choose-mirror 2.69), and
httpredir.debian.net always gives me one of those. Not the closest one
network- or geography- wise, but in a country the size of Poland, that's
deb.debian.org on the other hand, trying from two locations over three ISPs:
Starogard Gdański/Netia, Starogard Gdański/UPC, Gdańsk/Limes:
* IPv6: Amsterdam or London
* IPv4: MIT, San Francisco, London
An imaginary friend squared is a real enemy.
