Ubuntu does not load its local (near) mirror for downloading packaging

Question

The Ubuntu server is in Australia. However, every time I perform apt-get install/update/upgrade, it always load the U.S mirror for downloading.

$ sudo apt-get install make...
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  make
...
Get:1 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise/main make amd64 3.81-8.1ubuntu1 [118 kB]
Fetched 118 kB in 2s (47.7 kB/s)

Which results slow download, ideally, it should get file from au.archive.ubuntu.com

Do I misconfig somewhere?

Thanks.

Edit /etc/apt/sources.list accordingly and update the database with apt-get update.
