LOL! I got 20Gb (20) and it downloaded at the blazing speed of, wait for it, 7.5Mbps :-)
OK To be fair the machine I was using has a mere 1Gb interface so 20G IS 'unobtainium' but still....

Using Brave, it finally connected and we are re-downloading the file. Of
course it will take hours even though we have a high speed fibre connection
on this end.......

First rule of thumb - if you plan to install something on Friday - have
it downloaded one week before :)

Betreff: Re: ESS downloads not working

I liken much of their web site to a train wreck looking for a place to
happen. You simply cannot predict when where or how it will fail, the
only thing certain is that it will. And as Jim mentioned it's like a
dog that can sense fear, it knows your urgency and the higher that is
the greater a chance of failure!
