Summary0005556: kali repos are slow
DescriptionUsing HTTPS repos, speed seems limited to no more than 250 KB/s, both downloading indexes and packages. My connection speed is much higher, so that is not the problem. I have not tried using normal HTTP version.

Is it possible to get the full output of `apt update`?
Need to see which mirror you are finding slow.

We are not able to get the same speeds you are.

What country are you from?

If you are still facing slow speeds, you can switch to cloudflare
