I usually got 40-50 KB/s speed for downloading updates from Ubuntu Main Server. But for a while now, I'm not getting the desired speed. It's now came down to 4-5 KB/s. But when I switched to Server for Bangladesh (I'm a Bangladeshi), I got good speed (as of mentioned earlier). Now what's the problem here? Why I'm not getting the same speed as I used to get earlier?

Are you saying that the download speeds slowed when you changed from English to Bangladesh language selection or to a Bangladeshi download server? If servers I'm assuming its the CDN, bandwith, location of servers ect. – wlraider70 Apr 4 '13 at 20:00
@wlraider70 No. I mean when I select the main server then the speed is slower than the Bangladesh server. It's not about language. – tranjeeshan Apr 8 '13 at 8:33
