I’m measuring 30KB/s downloads from services.gradle.org? Other sites easily reach 400KB/s or more. Is there some issue with Gradle file hosting right now?
What exactly are you downloading? The binaries are served by Amazon S3 and CloudFront. Given that CloudFront is a geo aware cache, it may be your local node.
Throughput seems fine for me.

I had a friend try off-site and he was getting 100KB/s
Given that it’s from Amazon, I’m inclined to wait a little bit to see if the problem self heals before contacting them.
Ok, this was not working last week, but i checked today and I’m getting 1500KB/s now. Must have been an S3 issue or something.
