I have a beauty debian :P and 6Mb p/s Internet. But when I will download install a package from repo download speed is very slow (40kb p/s).

And when I will download a package from web page I download 300KB until 500KB in p/s with axel and aria2.

Can I use this tools for speedup apt-get download speed?

Is this a shared system? It sounds like bandwidth throttling may be enabled, but that usually needs to be done on purpose. – Lemur May 8 '13 at 6:39
@Lemur not shared system – chalist May 8 '13 at 6:49

You could replace your current apt-get repository by a faster mirror. See the mirror list at for more information

How I can recognize that which mirror is faster? – chalist May 8 '13 at 6:51
I find a package: netselect-apt . Run netselect-apt in terminal and this command search between all mirrors and find fastest mirror. Then that create a source.list file in home. Copy this file into /etc/apt/ and run sudo apt-get update and install anythings :D – chalist May 8 '13 at 8:44
