Since deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free is already in sources, a simple switch from debian.org to debian.net is all that's required. True? To recap and make *damned* sure I understand, deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main non-free contrib deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main contrib non-free are replaced with deb http://http.debian.net/debian stable main contrib non-free(http twice? doesn't look right) and the security and backports archives are unchanged except for the switch to debian.net.
