Accelerate and Increase Speed the "apt-get install" by "apt-fast"

Starting from the curiosity of the speed “apt-get install” on my ubuntu is really slow, I can finally a solution to speed it up is by “apt-fast” + “axel”

“apt-fast” is a script that uses Axel, ie command line application that can speed up downloading HTTP / FTP to use a multi-source to a file. We can use it except with “apt-get” in Debian-based Linux distribution to get the speed doubled.

To be able to use the “apt-fast”, we need to install “Axel” first, then download the script here. After the download is complete, just throw it extension. “sh” in that file and place the file in the “usr/bin”

Make it into an executable with the command:

chmod +x /usr/bin/apt-fast

good luck!
