Best Download Server

Which would be the best server to use if I live in Melbourne Australia. At the moment I use the Vic-Gamesapce servers but I only get about 200kb from them. My Standard download speed is 4-5 from a speedtest. Recently TF2 has started to download massive 1-3 GB updates when everyone else only reports having to download 75 mb. Whats worse is the updates download at a maximum speed of 6kb/s,

it depends how much are servers overloaded. I'm from eastern europe and I download from
Austria - 3.5MB/s
Ukraine - 2
London - 4.1
Czech Republic - about 5MB/s

but when you're downloading in sales season (halloween, x-mas, etc.), It is overloaded so its much slower.
Don't stop trying to search unless you don't find the best one for you.
I tried also US - Washington, Boston, NY and I downloaded about 4.5MB/s.

If you have 4-5Mbit from speedtest.net, your maximum download speed will be 500-625KB/s

Any luck finding the best download servers for Australia? I've spent the day trying to download on a 12MB/s connection from the Victorian servers. It was averaging around 2MB/s all up, but I've just switched to Taiwan and I seems to hover around 7MB/s and occasionally drop down to 4.5MB/s - which is much better than it was before.
