Very slow download speed of WP8 SDK.

Hey guys!
I want to download the Windows Phone 8 SDK ISO file but the client from the official site is way too slow at downloading it. After trying the offline download link as well, I found that the download runs at a speed of a pathetic ~40 kbps, which is damn slow to finish the 1.6 GB file. Is it just me or anyone else who had these problems with downloading the SDK file?
