That explains what I'm experiencing. It seems like two of the three

For years ftp.us.debian.org has been hard to connect to; it hangs for
long periods during downloads; and the download speed fluctuates wildly,
like between 300 bytes per second and 300 kilobytes per second.
ftp.us.debian.org is a round-robin dns rotation currently consisting of
three separate mirrors.
I'll try some mirrors.
