I've been trying to download Natty for days now, but either the internet here in Vietnam is totally shot or the Ubuntu CD server has a lot of traffic, because I can't get it to download faster than about 15Kbps. Does anyone know of a mirror, preferably close to Vietnam, where I could download (zsync) this image faster? Googling hasn't helped me, nor has Ubuntu's list of mirrors (I get stuck in a rabbithole of FTP folders, and nothing seems to point to the daily image).

Hmm. And if anyone has an ISP/Carrier map of the region, that might even help. Knowing where the major circuits to Vietnam are routed could be useful. – belacqua Mar 16 '11 at 5:01

It seems that most mirrors only mirror releases or the package archives, but not the daily ISOs.

I've put together a Google search that brings up some mirrors that you could try. I haven't seen any that are in Asia though. Below are the first few results I get.

You could always try the official link that should find the nearest mirror.

But as another user has already posted most mirrors do not mirror the daily ISOs.
