I've been downloading BAM files from GTEx which average around 5 GB each. I've been downloading the files using this protocol: https://anvilproject.org/learn/reference/gtex-v8-free-egress-instructions.
Sometimes when I download these files it'll only take a few minutes. However, other times, the first GB will download quickly, and then the download will continuously slow down until it essentially stops. This makes it impossible to download these files. Is the download being throttled? Is there any way for me to get consistent download times?
