Unable to resume on broken download. Slow network

Hi
I have a slow network. I have been trying to download Xojo for a few hours now. But it keeps breaking and I cant resume the download. Is there any Torrent link I can use? I am quite eager to use this but this is a big issue.

Hope there is a solution
Regards

Are you just downloading through browser?

Try and find a reputable download manager?

I just bought a new Mac Mini. New to it. I am reluctant to put utilities with just one function as I have the cheapest one. Usually, the browser (Opera) does do a good job. It does Resume other downloads. But not here.

Hopefully others with more Mac experience in downloads will chime in

I’m just a casual Mac user

Try using the built-in browser Safari.

Thanks everyone. I finally was able to download Xojo on my Mac. I just hope they read this and give a way to download on slow networks. Luckily there was no Internet glitch over 9 hours :slight_smile:

Good deal :+1:

9 hours? :astonished:

Some places still have to dial up or rely on very slow broadband

I believe that Sabu is from India. Not only slow, but seems that sometimes the government shuts the internet down too, at some places.

THird parties may also cut the Internet at intervals. In France and Germany (where I go), there is a 3 hours connection limit.

And I do not talk about unable to reach web sites with “blog” / “blogspot” in their URL, loss of ftp, etc.

I think my own internet speed made me ignorant to the possibility others may be worse off. I’m hovering around 100Mbps in Ireland, and always assumed that everyone had a better connection than me.

I should really look outside more often!

I just made a speed test right now in my home’s Internet connection: 0.28 Mbit/s. So yes, you’re not the slowest; by far.

I, for one, don’t like my Internet connection.

It was more sympathy heart than like :yum:

Again it still baffles me the internet speed around the world.

Of course, I was kidding :wink:

That’s why I’m considering getting Internet from satellite.

I do hear good things about Star-link but I don’t know about the price though.

Anything is definitely better than 0.28!

Your input is greatly appreciated, thank you; it’s true I’m hesitating and reading this makes me more confident to go on.

Not cheap. US$499 for the kit + $99/month for a 50~150mbps

I pay US$27/month for a 300mbps fiber link.

That’s brilliant for 300mb/s. I pay around £30 for 100mb/s on fiber.

I would give star link a miss personally, mainly because the wife says so lol
