[SOLVED] Pacman downloading speed unstable

Hello, i noticed that sometimes when i try to download packages (Installing or just Updating)
my download speed is pretty low (200-500 kilobytes / s) but when I interrupt the process (ctrl+c) and execute
it again i download the packages on normal speeds(5 megabytes / s).
As far as I am concerned my wireless card is working just fine and my internet connection is stable.
Any clue why is this happening?

The most likely reason - by a very large margin - is one or more of your mirrors are not a good fit (mirror could be inconsistent, generally bad, or just geographically remote relative to your location).  When was the last time you updated your mirror list, and how did you do so?

Re: [SOLVED] Pacman downloading speed unstable

I last updated my mirrors a week ago or so when i installed arch on my system. I generated and updated all mirrors the arch wiki way.
I will try to update them once more and see if something changes


[UPDATE]
Updating my mirrorlist did the job. Thanks a lot!
