Debian: find the fastest mirror

Just a quick self-note on how to find the fastest server for Debian. Ok, so most of the information here comes from this useful post.

Install netselect-apt

sudo apt-get install netselect-ap

And run it.

sudo netselect-apt

Note that the fastest mirror may not be the one providing the best bandwith.

You can have the same approach but for your DNS with namebench.
