Exact prorblem: Slow download from WordPress.org server

Downloading update from https://wordpress.org/nightly-builds/wordpress-latest.zip…

Download failed.: cURL error 28: Operation timed out after 300007 milliseconds with 15711991 out of 19178791 bytes received

Installation Failed

Sometime this problem becomes a reason for going WordPress down with Maintenance mode for very long time.

It seems wordpress.org server need serious upgrade.

Proof of concept
TTFB goes 800+ms https://tools.keycdn.com/performance?url=https://wordpress.org/latest.zip

Normal CMD at my location shows ping response time 300ms which should be improved to 50ms to have great experience like a CDN.
