I just recently started using bitbucket and am having an issue with very slow download speeds with git pull. Downloads of files through the web interface (from a repo's downloads page) are fine.
As a test, I created a repo with about 250mb (https://bitbucket.org/scottcs/speedtest). When pushing the initial commit to bitbucket, it took only 7m6.44s. I then immediately cloned the repo to a new directory, and that took 34m32.52s. For some reason the download transfer speed tops off between 90-100 KB/s. I am experiencing this slowness on both osx and windows, both using ssh and https, and on more than one bitbucket repo.
I had about 8 other people at my company clone my speedtest repo and they all had times between 2m-8m.
I first noticed the problem when trying to clone our company's repo (which is over 1GB in size). I've tried cloning from github, as well, and that is very fast.
I'm not sure how to further troubleshoot the problem, so I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.
