Downloading files in RStudio is very slow for me. For example, if I run
readabs::read_abs("6291.0.55.001", tables = 16) in RStudio it takes about 8 minutes to download the ~40MB file. However, if I run the same command in RGui, it takes only a couple of seconds. Downloading 'large' packages (like
sf) are also painfully slow in RStudio.
I think the problem is confined to RStudio because my internet speed is good (>300 Mbps) and the problem doesn't occur in RGui. Other people in my organisation don't seem to have the same problem as me, but I cannot find any difference in our settings.
I'm running Version 1.3.1060 of RStudio with R version 4.0.2.
