Malaysian mirrors for Ubuntu

Just found out that Multimedia University (MMU) has a mirror of the Ubuntu repository and it has a 100Mbps connection and it seems pretty up-to-date.
So for Malaysian Ubuntu users, set your /etc/apt/source.list to
http://ubuntu.mmu.edu.my/ubuntu

for example, for hardy

deb http://ubuntu.mmu.edu.my/ubuntu/ hardy-updates universe main multiverse restricted
deb http://ubuntu.mmu.edu.my/ubuntu/ hardy main universe restricted multiverse


Even with my 384Kbps Streamyx line, I get pretty good 40KBps downloads. It would be interesting to see what is the speed for the next major update.
