Github is slow in Europe

0

Hello there

Is anyone else experiencing issues getting the client from github in Europe?

I wanted to get back in FAF, but downloading the client from github via the FAF website was extremely slow (50kb/s).

After some research, I found that it is a mainly European-thing; when I used a VPN to North-America, I was able to get some decent speeds (2mb/sec).

Needless to say: at 50kb/sec, taking half an hour to get the client, a lot of new players might give up at that stage...

I believe that the download button on the website uses a mirror but @Brutus5000 would know more

The auto-update in the client points to this mirror: http://faf-mirror.brutus5000.net/
