Just something that started today, Ubuntu repos have been extremely slow...

I can't even reliably apt-get update but I solved that by changing the update server, ironically, now I'm realizing all third-party repos are extremely slow or timing out and failing.

Anyone else experiencing this? Any suggestions for fixing it? I am a third-party repo addict so I have quite a few: all launchpad repos failing, google's, and others.

EDIT: I've reported here concerning Google, not sure where to post for Launchpad.

I will add, it is hit or miss, I was able to hit launchpad a bit.

So my question really is: Any launchpad alternatives like there are for changing official update servers as posted above?

No, PPAs are hosted only on launchpad.net and are not mirrored. I usually find launchpad.net to be slower than any local mirror for the official repositories.
