How To: Speed Up kali linux dist-upgrade

Kali Linux 1.0.6 is Released some time ago and am a big fan of Kali Linux. So i wanted to upgrade from version 1.0.5 to 1.0.6 but as i did

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

The upgrade speed was extremely slow like hell, i have good connection but the reason is the Kali linux HTTP server is overloaded.

So what i did was change the apt-get sources list from below

vi /etc/apt/sources.list

apt-get dist-upgrade
