For official Debian mirror sites there is an app, 'netselect', (man
netselect)that will find the quickest mirror for your location.
'netselect-apt' will use the list of mirrors from Debian.org, find the
fastest one to your location, then write a sources.list file. Interesting
info on different mirror sites.
