A mirror is an exact duplicate of another site, usually in order to facilitate 
large downloads. The "mirrors" are synchronized with the Ubuntu site at 
certain predetermined intervals. So you can download from addresses other than 
Ubuntu.org. If you use a less busy mirror, your downloads go a lot faster.
