Timeouts and Retries from downloads.openwrt for sources

Lately i've been getting lots of timeouts and retries like:

curl: (18) transfer closed with 46504538 bytes remaining to read

This is when attempting to download linux-4.14.131.tar.xz from https://downloads.openwrt.org/sources/linux-4.14.131.tar.xz using the build process.
It happens with other packages as well, although they usually are sufficiently small that they manage to crawl through the pipe to completion.

Am i alone in this or has anyone else seen it?
Geographically in Australia if it makes a difference and someone wants to look into server logs etc.

As a follow up, i corrected the error in my script causing it to fail downloading from the kernel.org CDN (which downloads successfully), so it isn't causing me any major stress. However i'm still curious to know what's going on.

Also in AU.... using buildroot things like;

git clone 
error: RPC failed; curl 56 GnuTLS recv error (-9): A TLS packet with unexpected length was received.
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
fatal: early EOF
fatal: index-pack failed

"https://git.openwrt.org/openwrt/openwrt.git" HANGS ( starts slow gets slower and STOPS around 83% )
"https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt.git" WORKS

Everything looks in order from the server side. Maybe bad routing or something
