Maybe it's worth to choose another mirror manually from

you need to tell us the real mirror you're downloading from, so we can investigate. LibreOffice is served my more than 80 Mirrors worldwide...
So please have a look in your browser's download details and post the real URL to the file (http://download.documentfoundation.org/... is not the real url - that one just picks a mirror for you). If you encounter a slow mirror, use the "info" link on the downloadpage and choose a different mirror from the list (but still notify us about the slow one)

I have this same problem. I've downloaded hundreds of programs and never had this ridiculous situation. Must be a problem with the libreoffice site.

I have the same problem and it is ridiculous. Hundreds of other programs I have downloaded are not this bad. Must be a problem with the libreoffice site.
I'm using Firefox 12. By right mouse clicking on the item being downloaded in the "Downloads" box, I can choose "Copy link" from the popup menu. Here it is:
This is the third time I started a download and got these kinds of numbers. I cancelled the first two. I just checked, and both of those are identical to the link pasted above. I also verified that selecting some other previous download produced a different link. I really did get layerjet.com all three times. Perhaps everyone is getting layerjet.com and that's why it's slow, it's just overloaded.
Just the same, I let this dl run all night. I am still getting between 8-10 kbps with 30 minutes to go. I have FiOS and have gotten as high as 1600 kbps when downloading.
NOTE TO OTHERS: On the LibreOffice Downloads page, in the big green button, you will see two words; (Torrent, Info). Clicking on Info will enable you to choose a mirror. I'd start there and not choose layerjet.com right now.
Hope this helps.
