mirror.aarnet has a mirror, but it's bandwidth-capped.

Depending on your ISP, they may have a Debian mirror or similar
handy... I know off hand of two TransACT ISPs who're offering
Debian, Velocity and Bandwidth Unlimited (which I'm involved with).

BU is only running apt-proxy, and pulls from mirror.aarnet and
planetmirror, so it may not be significantly faster anyway.

BU's is also only for BU TransACT customers... No idea if Velocity's
is access-limited. :-)

If you're on the ANU campus, there _was_ a Debian mirror lying
around, but I don't know if it's still there (I vaguely remember
it being broken when I moved) and it's i386 only I think.
