I have trouble to download the SAS for university ova file

Hello,

 

This whole night I was not able to download the 2.6 GB ova file. The downloading process began with a downloading speed of about 2.5 MB/s. However, when it reached 85%, the downloading speed fell sharply to less than 300 KB/s and finally to around 10 KB/s. What to do with this matter?

The file is big, so you do need a dedicated high speed internet connection, it should be about 2 GB as far as I recall, not 2.6, though maybe the update changed the size. 

 

I would recommend doing it sometime during business hours in the US because updates to sites tend to happen in the middle of the night US time which would impact your attempt to download items.
