No, that is the wrong tool for the job. apt-mirror is an effective way
to mirror a distribution, not a tool to find the fast mirror.
A selection of ubuntu mirrors listed with connection speed/bandwidth
and uptodateness is at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archivemirrors
Or you could use us.archive.ubuntu.com. That may point to a number of
partner mirrors (so you aren't downloading all the time from the same
physical site). That's the way it is in debian land.
