You could create a test machine in the city where net is good and save 
all the deb packages from your /var/cache/apt/archives into a CD. Then 
either add the CD to the system as a repo or paste all the packages into 
the target machine's archives folder. Apt-get will go to the net for 
record keeping but will find the package already downloaded. Feisty has 
an option to add cds as a repos as soon as they are auto detected. It 
then brings up the gui package manager. That should be the simpler way.
