Use local /etc/apt/sources.list entries for amsterdam debian servers

The default sources.list entries for all droplets are the us debian mirrors... the speed of update and upgrade increases dramatically if you use the local Dutch servers...

deb http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free

deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free

Can these be set as default for these server locations?

Thanks
Duncan

    You may as well use the http.debian.net redirector; it will send you to a fast mirror in (or near) the Netherlands.
