I am facing slow speed when downloading snaps.
I have to tell my ISP provider the url from where snaps are downloaded.
My ISP provides 5 mbps connection but I am just getting 1 mbps:

The first two hosts it will hit are

If you'd like to help debug speed issues when downloading snaps, here's some steps you can try to get more information.

$ sudo systemctl edit snapd.service [Service] Environment=SNAPD_DEBUG=1 SNAPD_DEBUG_HTTP=7
$ sudo systemctl restart snapd.service
Install a large snap such as libreoffice or vscode
$ sudo snap install libreoffice
Then inspecting the logs using
$ journalctl -xeu snapd
