Repositories are slow in Kali?? Seems so...


These are the contents of my "/etc/apt/sources.list" in Kali Linux :

#
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 7.0 _Kali_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20130315-11:02]/ kali contrib main non-free
#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 7.0 _Kali_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20130315-11:02]/ kali contrib main non-free
deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali main non-free contrib
deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali main non-free contrib
## Security updates
deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free

Seems like these softwares mirrors on kali.org are too slow coz I'm getting something like a 100 kb/s of speed which rarely goes to 300 kb/s at times. Even though the other linux repo's serve my software requests at around 800-900 kb/s. You can observe the same thing when you're trying to download Kali from the official site. Seems like they have a bandwidth issue.
Use Alt Download mirrors at other locations when you're downloading Kali ISO.
