Remember at SourceForge our iso is hosted on 20 servers or so.
So change to a server that is close to you in distance sounds like a good way to improve your download speed.


Another tip given by an ArchMerger is to install axel - light command line download accelerator

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -S axel
Then copy/paste the url behind it where you want to download from with CTRL + SHIFT + V in termite.


When testing axel this was my download speed at the end.

Downloaded 2.0 Gigabyte in 1:43 minute(s). (20768.17 KB/s)

You test it out for what it is worth.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
