Download from bitbucket is extreme slow


I'm trying to clone a repository of approx 900 Mb, but last night i got an error after 3 hours and the clone stopped.

Today i'm trying to download the repository directly and it say it's downloading with approx 100 Kb.

Please don't comment, that I should restart my network devices since i'm on a network company and I have tried downloading it from my mobile with same result.

Hi Ulrik, welcome to the Community!

Are you still experiencing this issue? A couple of days ago we were experiencing high traffic load during which the performance of the site was degraded, so you might have been affected by that. This can be checked at

If you're still having trouble, can you let us know how big is the repository? Id this happening across all of your repos or only this one specifically?



Hi Anna and thanks

The issue is not as bad as last week. Now I can dowload without error, but I still can't download faster than approx 2Mb. I don't know if that is an acceptable download speed?

Br. Ulrik

Last two days I"m downloading at about 500 KiB/s.  Like pulling teeth

today I am experiencing downloads of around 11 KiB/s. The repository is only 3.14 MiB... but taking a very long time to clone. Even though my connection speed is currently averaging at 200 Mbps or higher.
