Summary0007794: Incredibly slow/ impossible Kali download speed.

I cant download Kali. I've tried all of the packages but they all have a incredibly slow download speed.
At about 10kb/s, the download has failed every damn time. What can I do?
I've searched YouTube, Quora, Reddit, Toms Hardware and your forums but no answer!
Please guys I need a fix ASAP

Steps To Reproduce

Simply download Bare Metal Kali x64 ISO.

Hey Brother!

you can solve this by :

  1. Go to kali-tweaks -> Network repo (something like that) -> select Cloudflare CDN then HTTPS from below

save that, Now try update and upgrade , it will be solved now

Its not a problem while using Kali, like "sudo apt update" or whatever.
The problem is that I cannot download the Kali ISO from the official site (very slow download that fails).
Hope this helps?

Please try to download using a bittorrent client. There's a "torrent" link for most Kali images (except the weekly image). Click this link, and open the .torrent file with a bittorrent client..

Otherwise, try downloading the image from the command-line, using wget IMAGE_URL (replace IMAGE_URL by the image URL) and copy/paste the output here, so that we can see what server you download from.
