Debian is distributed (mirrored) on hundreds of servers on the Internet.  
Using a nearby server will probably speed up your download, and also reduce  
the load on our central servers and on the Internet as a whole.Debian mirrors  
can be primary and secondary. The definitions are as follows:A primary mirror  
site has good bandwidth, is available 24 hours a day, and has an easy to  
remember name of the form ftp..debian.org.
They are all automatically updated whenever there are updates to the Debian  
archive.A secondary mirror site may have restrictions on what they mirror  
(due to space restrictions). Just because a site is secondary doesn't  
necessarily mean it'll be any slower or less up to date than a primary  
site.Use the site closest to you for the fastest downloads possible whether  
it is a primary or secondary site. The program netselect can be used to  
determine the site with the least latency; use a download program such as  
wget or rsync for determining the site with the most throughput. Note that  
geographic proximity often isn't the most important factor for determining  
which machine will serve you best.The authoritative copy of the following  
list can always be found at: http://www.debian.org/mirror/list.If you know of  
any mirrors that are missing from this list, please have the site maintainer  
fill out the form at: http://www.debian.org/mirror/submit.Everything else you
