Download from files.mcneel.com is < 50 kB/s

I’m downloading this 100 MB MSI at a grinding 48 kB/s here [31 minutes to go]. Anything you can do (host it on Amazon infrastructure for example)?

I thought it was on S3.

@brian can you tell me more. Unfortunately he is out today.

The link I used to get to the download is here

Not only is that file on S3, it is distributed using the Amazon CloudFront CDN. If it is slow, it is either on your end or (much less likely) Amazon’s end - unfortunately I can’t fix either.—

OK, well it downloaded in the end. Got me thinking of my first modem that took 45 mins to download 1 MB :smile:

Is it any faster today? What about this link instead:
http://files.na.mcneel.com/dujour/exe/20140609/rh50sdk_5.9.40609.20145.msi

(files.na.mcneel.com is an S3 bucket, files.mcneel.com is the Amazon CloudFront distribution for said S3 bucket)
