I've been having the same problem. I only see it on the SX tracks, don't have a problem on any other Mediafire link. Going to try a VPN next to see what happens. This week I had to download the ultra low res to make the race and the download actually stopped at 0 bytes/s for a few minutes.

Links are directed from the MXSEMF site, I imagine there's a higher latency to the server from the US. I've been averaging 17kbps lately :roll:. Bandwidth of that server may also not be phenomenal especially when multiple people are downloading.


the server bandwidth is 1Gbit/sec, based in Paris in one of the best ISP. So ye i guess the latency from US slowdown things but 17kps, you msut have a big problem. Try doing speedtest.net selecting a paris server and then an US server to see the difference.

Most of the tracks are uploaded to the EMF site rather than Mediafire. My assumption is you get boned when there are a hundred people trying to download it at once.
