Fetch download speed (3 posts)

    I've noticed that fetch download speed appears to be suppressed compared with FileZilla. Most recent example, I have access to a new server and a 500MB file was only downloading at just under 500KB/s

    However, I tried the same connection and file with filezilla and averaged 3.5Mbps.

    Is there a configuration item in Fetch that I need to deal with?

    There's no configuration to set -- Fetch is going as fast as it can. I should note, however, that 500KB/s is the same as 4Mbps, because there are 8 bits (b) in a byte (B).

    Yep, I understand, sorry, I cited the wrong unit. The value is actually MiB/s

    I thought that was Mbps. So it takes only a 2 minutes with Filezilla while it takes 20 minutes with Fetch.
