However, downloading lately has slowed so much that some just freeze up bringing the download to a halt. I'm sure the UT server must be having some problems but not for two weeks going. Originally it was quite fast but now it's slower than the regular us.ubuntu server.  Anyone using the UT mirror know what's going on? I'm ddownloading apt-mirror but I don't think that's the best way to find a fast mirror. Anyone have any suggestions on a fast mirror for my location. I on a dsl pro broadband, BTW and it's almost as slow as dial-up.  Thanks for any suggestions.

    I use the server at Utah U and it seems to be fast, but like you I 
am using DSL which is nothing to be proud of. It settles down to about 
27 KB/sec which is better than dial-up :-)

    Utah is closer to NM than TX.
