Xamarin Installer slow?

I have a 100 Mbps line, and it seems like the Xamarin.Android installer is throttling to between 10 and 50 KB/s, sometimes sitting at 0 B/s for extended times. 3 hours and only ~576 MB downloaded.

I know it's not my ISP. Same PC speed tests at over 90 Mbps with 2 instances of Netflix and Xbox Live going full force.

Is this normal?

    Nope, that is not normal. I am pretty sure the installer grabs the Android SDK from Google's own servers, so might be something wrong there. Does it happen consistently?

    The issue is with your path to the Google download server from which the installer is downloading the Android SDK. You could try downloading the Android SDK yourself, which might connect you with a server in a different location. If successful, you can install the Android SDK and then return the Xamarin installer and it should skip the Android SDK download.
