Some people are experiencing really slow downloads on files at my website. When I check it on my Satellite and Android phone, it's fast. One person in particular has the fastest internet available, but has experience this regularly on his iPhone. Any ideas what I can do to speed things up???

It loaded quickly for me. Perhaps it's a browser issue. Try a refresh.

What are they experiencing? Is it slow to start? or does it hesitate? I tried it on a PC on a relatively slow connection and it payed fine. I do not have an iPhone available at this time. Is it all iPhones, or is it a question of timing?

Thanks - I'm converting these files to links to my Amazon Web Service - so that might help. He tells me it says it's downloading, but just hangs and sits there with little to no movement indicating the download is progressing.

Let us know. We can look in to this on Monday when I have access to an iPhone.

I'm thinking there are two possibilities: 1) Homestead server is slow sometimes due to high traffic; 2) It's the device being downloaded to - which means try other browsers - make sure wifi is good, ... I was wondering if other Homestead customers were having similar issues with sometimes fast / sometimes slow downloads. I've changed this particular series out to AWS - but actually doubt that'll help. Thanks - feel free to weigh in when you have access to your iPhone. I am "apple free" - so I'm limited on testing.

Thanks - but THAT'S the problem - it loads quickly for me, but I've been getting several calls from my pastor (it's his website I created and manage) about his problem and other's he's fielding complaints from. I've been converting files stored at Homestead to links to Amazon Web Services. This may be a solution. I will also recommend switching browser which might help. Thanks.
