Few weeks ago we did show you apt-fast, a  little shellscript that increases the speed of apt-get by many times. Thanks to sourceslist Team , apt-fast got an interface named 1blink-updater to simply install apt-fast, to integrate it with Synaptic and to perform updates. 

About apt-Fast:

The apt-fast script is a little shellscript that increases the speed of apt-get by many times. You need to have the axel download accelerator installed, which is a simple, short process, but everything else is extremely straight forward. After installing and using apt-fast   you will notice that the speed of downloading  and installing a package  is  more than 26 times faster than before. Check our previous post for more information
