You still might want to check your repo & select an alternate, perhaps
You can check using Applications|Software Sources|Download from|Other
and check 'United States'. Note: 'Select Best Server' isn't very
reliable either; it just uses ping to test the servers. For instance, I
just checked and it selects Thailand as my best 'th.archive.ubuntu.com'
and that's just plain silly -- I use ftp.usf.edu (University of San
Francisco) as it's nearby and has never failed me yet. Plus it's about
30 miles from me & has always provided full speed downloads.
