Please revise the list while at it,
https://www.debian.org/mirror/list

While not enforced in any we perhaps we can consider something something like a 4+4+2(+1) (https/http/ftp/(master if available) and CDN first) to avoid having unnecessary long lists of mirrors? I think you can safely assume at if you cannot connect to 10+ sites worldwide you have connectivity issues rather than flakey mirrors.

Something like this perhaps? I prioritized mirrors that are carries everything (ALL) and tried use ones with good overall connectivity and coverage. Many mirrors seems to have discontinued their ftp service.

I think revise the whole MASTER_SITE_DEBIAN is a good idea. While working on it, how about removing the deprecated sites first?

Revising the whole MASTER_SITE_DEBIAN should be handled by another bug report.
