Well, it depends.
Geographically closest doesn't necessarily mean that they
are also the closest network-wise. When I perform a
traceroute to plehier.net from my provider at home, it
goes via France.

Did you try one of the other six? Or maybe one of the
French servers? The Dutch ones might be worth a try, too.
The FTP servers are located in different networks, which
have different connectivity (uplinks, peerings). Sometimes
the name aliases of the mirrors change -- for example, if
if one of the servers isn't up to date, or if connectivity
of the providers has changed.
