Can try a VPN for slow downloads

Postby WishItWasAStick » Tue Sep 08, 2020 10:49 pm

You can sign up for a VPN service so your download takes a different path.

I found that some hop in the US was causing my download of P3Dv5, from Canada, to go very slow. It would have taken a couple days.

VPN Server - connected to Germany, bang - down to 2-3 hours.

Hopefully this helps somebody.

This might indeed help others.

In some cases I have seen people in the US even having download times like you, whereas I - being in the very northern tip of Germany - can download v. 5 in 20-25 minutes.

Thank you for posting this -
