3.5 second ping times to that site from here (Melbourne) (they are
in WA). They are ftp.au.debian.org and www.au.debian.org too. So it's
3.5 seconds to www.au.debian.org, or 470ms to www.debian.org, or
even 430ms to say www.de.debian.org. A bit disappointing.
I use ftp://ftp.uwa.edu.au a lot for a mirror, <= 100ms.
APT does do proxies, just set your environment variables eg
I have to use one here too.
