Apt alternative for Gnome update wanted (fedora)


I've only come across one repository that supplies gnome updates via Apt and that is...

...however it is painfully slow and on my 1Mb connection I only ever seem to get a trickle in the thousands of bytes (yes I said just bytes, no kilo or mega here), plus it would stall for a large % of the time and just end up failing in others, whereas I can pull other stuff from other repositories at pretty much full speed.

Does anyone else get slow speeds from Ecsc? ^^^

I've tried source lists from places like...

...but so far, I've not come across another repos that does Gnome updates

Does anyone know of an alternative?

Thanks in advance
