My ISP is slow and it takes 2 or 3 hours to DL NOOBS. If you press refresh on the explorer menu then you can see the progress (Windows).
Several times my DL appears to stop at random places without an error message or any indication that anything is wrong other than the file-size is not right. I have to note the expected file size reported by the Firefox DL manager then compare that to the finished DL file-size.
My ISP does not do Torrents at all...
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.
