Slow speed or no speed downloading from github

Postby helloimustbegoing » Mon, 15 Jan 2018, 02:34

I've been noticing for a while now, probably a couple of months at least, that I either get very slow downloads off of github.com, or that I'm not able to download at all. I can tell when it'll happen because the github page loads very slowly. I'd say this happens around about a third of the time. I know it's not a Pale Moon problem (or Basilisk); I even tried IE this morning and I couldn't download. Could it be my ISP doesn't like its customers on github? Has anyone else seen this problem?

I do not download files from GitHub much, but overall I see no performance issues with GitHub - the site is super responsive in day-to-day browsing. With you, maybe it's a network or location thing?

If you are using the x86 version, try the x64.
