This is precisely one of the things why it was set up some time ago 
mirror.ppa.trinitydesktop.org.

The line to the primary server have limited bandwidth and each additional user 
downloading directly from quickbuild causes slowdown in synchronization to 
the mirrors. Unfortunate that many users still have registered in the apt 
sources ppa.quickbuild.pearsoncomputing.net.

New mirror.ppa.trinitydesktop.org would have prevented the situation, because 
apt lists on the mirrors has not yet been updated to R14.0.2 == for its users 
is not yet R14.0.2 for download...
