1) Use Synaptic to find the fastest server. Synaptic>Settings>Repositories. In the first page "Debian Software" click Download from and change it to Other ---then hit the Select Best Server button.

2) Have a look at Debian Sources List Generator - http://debgen.simplylinux.ch/

This has served me well in the past.

If you are concerned with stability then I would stick with squeeze repositories.

Sample Output -->
