apt-get download simultaneously from mirrors?


Is there anyway to have apt-get download simultaneously from several mirrors? I'm new to debian (many years of slackware), so I hope this isn't a stupid question...

I have noticed that if you have multiple mirrors setup, apt will download two or more packages at the same time from one or more of those mirrors.

I have 3 mirrors, but it only downloads from the first one in the list.

Maybe the packages in all repos are the same, so its just using one. I have tried to serach on google but there aren't many articles that discuss this issue.
