|For a while now, our Spanish users were discontent with their official Debian mirror site, ftp.es.debian.org, mainly because its bandwidth was limited to lowly ~ 10kb/s.
I am happy to announce that this has now been fixed 🙂 Thanks to the effort of Eduardo Diaz and David Martinez, a new server has been set up (in Madrid, no longer in Vigo), and it’s no longer limited at such measly speeds — I pulled a file at 750kb/s a few hours ago from over here, it might very well be much better from within Spain.
Still not too much of an improvement for those who use ISPs that don’t peer at decent speeds with RedIRIS/GEANT, but oh well. 🙂
And the obligatory access method list:
