download setup speed

Downloading the asetup.exe file to download a new version of Avant takes about 10 times as long as other files I get which are of similar size. Any explanation? It takes a lot less time to get the new version itslef.

I just downloaded build 116 asetup.exe to test the speed. It came down at just under 5 mbps on my 6 mbps connection, which is reasonably close to the speed I usually see for downloads.

The speed to download depends entirely on the servers load. However, I popped the latest build into the archives on the day of its release (archives are on an alternate and much faster server);
