Cloning a repo: slow speed

Hi, i'm trying to clone a repo in aptana via https and also ssh, but the speed is very slow. The average speed is 10kb/s

Do you know a solution? Thanks

You don't say what kind of repo (Git/Mercurial) or the size of the repository. All those can make a difference in clone performance. Your network may also impact the performance. Here are some things you can do to troubleshoot:

  • Clone another repo and see if the performance varies
  • Try a different protocol (you've done this)
  • Verify with your network admin that there is nothing locally
  • Review the Bitbucket status blog

The repo use Git, size around 20mb

I've no problem with my network

Was this issue ever resolved? I am also experiencing slow speeds when cloning a git repo. Actually my downloads seem to get throttled after about 30% downloaded. My average speeds are 90Kbps to 150Kbps, on a gigabit network. Anyone have any additional insight on this issue?

We don't have any issues with our network that would cause this. In many cases, we've found that the route from a user's ISP to our network (NTT) to be the issue. Please work with your ISP first to determine if they can reproduce the issue. Then, review our network troubleshooting guide for assistance in things you can check that could be a cause. Finally, once you've exhausted these options, come to support with the results from the tests noted in our trhoubleshooting guide. We will be able to provide this information to our network provider.

I also faces the same issues

Same here in 2019.. download speed from repo 60-100 kbps on 100 mbps download. No problem on ISP, everything else working perfectly. Obviously Bitbucket is being very slow and nobody pays attention. Time to move to GitHub
