Download speed of install files


Is there a reason why the download speed of the install files, especially Windows, is throttled to around 700KB/s? Nearly 5 minutes to download a 140MB file seems a little excessive!
Surely there are faster servers this can be hosted on?

Sorry to hear that, for now Etcher releases are hosted on GitHub and the download speed is tied to it.
Sometimes it’s blazing fast, sometimes it’s not I guess depending on the loads of requests, but Etcher’s auto-update feature is also tied to the same releases, although we release auto-updates with a slower pace, so for now we don’t have any plans for switching.
