RoPieee download is REALLY slow

Does anyone have an alternative D/L site? I’m only getting like 50kbps from the main page.

I"ve kicked my VPS. Maybe you can retry.

RoPieee has a lot of users, but the downside is that my VPS sometimes has a hard time.
Time for a proper CDN I guess…

No difference. When I originally downloaded it, it only took a few minutes to download. Now it’s at 13 hours.

that’s weird. I get about 15 MB/s…

I tested my connection and it’s fine. I tried downloading something else and it’s cooking along as well.

I really don’t get it. I’m at a steady 20+ MB/s.

Can someone else give it a shot, community folks?

Forgot to mention I’ve tried it on two computers, and tested wireless and wired.

Just checked – downloading at full speed here.

This is so weird. Like, every other download I’ve tried works just fine. I’ve rebooted my router as well.

Checked in UK - decent speed.

While streaming two movies and uploading a backup to S3. Looks okay to me.

I just tried downloading the Roon client and it gave me 15mbps. So I’m not sure why the RoPieee server hates me. This doesn’t make any sense.

I can assure you I don’t hate you :wink:

Well, I guess I’m setting up the new core sometime tomorrow. -_-

Where are you located? US?

Yep. Baltimore, MD.

A friend of mine in Canada just tried and they got the same result as me.

wow. ok.

It seems that explains the difference: the other are either in the UK or in the Netherlands (just as me).
Although I’m not sure about @Martin_Webster :slight_smile:

In Vancouver, Canada, very slow speeds (on a gigabit connection full duplex).

Hmmm that’s not good. I’ve contacted the help desk of my VPS provider.
