I just sudo apt-get updated my repos and it took in total, 5 seconds to get everything. It usually takes 2/3 minutes. Have the repos been shortened?

2/3 mins sounds way too much. For me it usually tikes about 5-10 seconds – Adonis K. Aug 26 '12 at 8:47
2/3 minutes for update? I doubt it...Do you mean upgrade? – NlightNFotis Aug 26 '12 at 8:48

I have 100kb/s connection when I'm downloading. – KI4JGT Aug 26 '12 at 10:11
