Well I have had a couple of other people check this, and they are having no problems either.
I have just “bought” this week’s freebie and checked it out, and it is downloading fine, as I type this. And at the normal download speed for me, and I have terrible broadband connection.
I really do suggest that you close your browser, clear your cache. Possibly even reboot your system, to make sure the cache is completely emptied. Maybe you can even reset your router. It is not a problem that is affecting others.
