Hmm, so quite a disparity.
What might be useful, if someone encounters a problematic download, would be
to fire up a command prompt and manually attempt to download the file - that
way the download server chosen can be identified and a traceroute and pings
can be run against it to determine whether there's a particular CDN at fault
(IIRC the BBC use three; Akamai, LimeLight and Level3) or whether there's
some intermittent routing problems at LINX.
