Hi – I’ve just broken the EE SPT topic into four files of roughly 100MB each, and will post them on Box.net. That might help with downloading, particularly with variable connection speeds.
There doesn’t seem to be any underlying problem with Box.net (given that many users can download quickly from them), and our IT staff feel it’s unlikely to be an issue with Transatlantic bandwidth. Please bear in mind that individual connections might vary.
I’ll keep an eye out for future user comments, in case we build stronger evidence that there is a problem with Box.net. Thank you.
