Problems downloading Ubuntu using Jigdo

I am giving a try to Ubuntu, so I decided to download it. I found in the mirror directory that there were some jigdo files, so I decided to download Ubuntu using Jigdo, just as I download Debian (my current distro).

I used this jigdo file and when jigdo starts and asks me to provide a mirror, the search capability to find one (by country code, etc.) doesn't work. It gives me the same debian mirrors as if I were downloading sarge instead of ubuntu. I tried with some of these, because as Ubuntu comes from Debian, I thought that they might actually share the same servers, but all I got was 404 HTTP error with every single file. Where can I find Ubuntu mirror URLs for jigdo to work with this Jigdo file?

The Ubuntu version I'm downloading is the latest, Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger), as can be derived from the jigdo file name above.
