after a fresh install, I tried to upgrade, but I was only getting around 300k down from the standard debian ftp, so I looked for a guide and found this one

I used apt-spy, and the command sudo apt-spy -d squeeze -a north america, after it found a mirror, my down speed went from 330k to 2100k down.
all you have to do is open synaptic, disable the debian ftp, and make sure you're using the mirror that apt-spy chose.
