likely instead of downloading large files/archives of files (zips etc) it's downloading (or merely checking/requesting) lots of [small] individual files. yes tcp is good streaming bulk data but sub-optimal with many many small packets (you know, packets are small but each still having the same sized headers, other paraphernalia as well as req/ack/nack handling)

in a way same concept as DDS attacks, lots of tiny [including request-answer] packets (in both directions) does way more damage than a huge file transfer.

then the connection: fibre, cable and even wi-fi although fast it's only half duplex
...again all them tiny rapid fire reqs, acks and nacks generated at your machine (= zero latency) holding up the remote [hence latency delayed] incoming packets

- lots of carnage, and after the cleanup that who gets to try again soonest [and most often]...
