Why does a 1gb file take so long to download? My download speed is fine so I see no reason for the download to take so long unless the servers are just bad? Is there no mirror that I can download from that isn't trash?

Some numbers would be helpful. You can try to download using torrents - here's a page with some magnet links. (Verify checksums if you want)

Alternatively use a download accelerator that can open multiple connections e.g. IDM on Windows.
