apt-fast: Speedup ubuntu package downloads

apt-fast is a tool that allows you to download multiple packages at the same time. This speeds up installing/upgrading the packages. Execute following commands to add apt-fast ppa repository and install dependencies.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:apt-fast/stable
sudo apt-get -y update
sudo apt-get -y install apt-fast axel aria2

During installation choose either axel/aria2 for download manager and accept remaining defaults.

From now on use apt-fast in place of apt-get in package management commands.
