TCL cable Wellington (10Mbs/50GB plan)
I occasionally DL large zip files (eg. 23 folders/subfolders, 220 files, ~1GB) from a private website hosted ex 1&1 (in US?). (Website primarily used for transfer of large 'data' files). The files are uploaded by work colleagues in the US. Generally I use FDM to minimise DL time (~15min).
A few weeks ago, for the first time I got a CRC error while attempting to extract one of the included files after DL. Error message indicated a ~4bit(byte?) discrepancy in the file size. I re-downloaded the file & extracted all files from the second DL without problem.
I encountered a similar problem this morning (only 1 / 220 files affected), but this time the second attempt at downloading the zip, also resulted in a CRC error, this time in a different file. Fortunately by combining the two, I managed to patch together a complete file set. Did not fancy yet another 1GB DL.
Question is, has anyone else (on TCL cable or otherwise) noticed any, or an increase in errors in files downloaded from international sites?
