Slow download speed on Arma3sync

Usually, using Arma3Sync would be a breeze for me, that until last month. Ever since last month, the download speeds have become unbearably slow, preventing me from joining either Public or Operations. It would say it is going at a speed of '1.2mb/s' but that appears to be a flatout lie as the mods that are being downloaded seem to be downloading at a snail's pace. 1kb/s is more like it. I know it's not my internet connection, everything BUT Arma3Sync is fast.

Has anyone ran into this issue or am I just unlucky?

I guess we will find out in an hour or two when I update the repo with the new map. However, yesterday I waited with a new player while he downloaded the mods and he had no issues. You did the active connections correctly so I don't know what could be causing it.

I'm having the same issues sometimes. My download speed seems to be perfect while downloading from Steam, but here it's usually 300 to 500 KB/s.

My normal download speed is 1.5 - 2 MB/s (yes I know, it's shit).

There is nothing that can be done in this case.
Possibly there is something throttling the connection between the server and you. Possibly there is something else on your end. Maybe it's your router, maybe your firewall, maybe something completely different, but the server is barely using any of its available bandwidth and the hard drive that everyone downloads the files from is exclusively used for the file downloads so that I can't imagine that there is any throttling server side. The only thing I can suggest is to download the files from your favourite download source (Steam Workshop, PWS, Armaholic) and to then have A3Sync edit the few files that may be different.
