Why are the downloads for Wine so slow? I have a 50Mbps pipe, but the downloads for Wine versions are EXTREMELY slow (takes more than 5 minutes to download a version). It's not my connection- I just did a speed test and peaked at 68Mbps. I've used POL for a long time, and the downloads have always been fast until recently. I am using Arch Linux w/Cinnamon DE. 8GB RAM, nVidia GT640 video card. I am on a hardwired connection. Any help would be appreciated!

1 minute to download a wine version for me.

Sorry but it does not come from the server

That's really odd... my download speeds (just for new WINE version downloads) on my desktop are CRAWLING slow. On my laptop, my speeds are normal. I'm running Arch w/Cinnamon on both. Strange... guess I will be doing some digging around to try to find out what's going on with my desktop.
