We have been working on integrating a ETH node to our e-wallet to enable ether transactions. We completely build the platform by connecting to a private Ethereum network. Now everything is ready to go on to the mainnet. I started the download (fast download) last Thursday, any by today it had only downloaded about 108 GB. And the download speed has drastically decreased in the last few days. At this rate I feel like it will take forever to sync the blockchain. After searching for a while I found a article which said to use a VPN to change the location. I tried this out but the download speed didn't improve much.
I'm I doing anything wrong? Are there any other recommendations to improve the download speed?
