I'm sure someone already responded by now, but I would like to say two 
things here.  First, this is a little off topic for this list since 
there are clear instructions on finding local mirrors in many places, 
including a package that checks all mirrors for the best speed.  Second, 
you can always go to the Debian mirrors page and pick another closer to 
you geographically.  Since I have no idea where you live, it's dificult 
for me to tell you a mirror to use.  I use mirrors.kernel.org but that 
is close to me.  I don't know if you are in the US or not, so that 
mirror is probably not good for you.  Also, I'm not clear about what you 
mean when you say most packages are broken.  If you're running unstable, 
that's to be expected.  Perhaps you need to manually install some packages?
