Good news to  Malaysian Ubuntu users. Inigo-Tech has setup a local Ubuntu repository mirror.  " http://mirror.inigo-tech/ubuntu "

To use the repository simply add it suing the Synaptic Package Manager or you could edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file to include the line below,

" deb feisty feisty-backports universe multiverse "

I can’t test the performance gain as I don’t have an ubuntu box at home but I am quite sure you would see improvements since we don’t need to access the super fast (ya right!!) international gateway.

Please drop me a note on your experience with this new mirror.

Inigo-Tech also has a mirror for FreeBSD setup. Read more here.
