Why meteor packages are so heavily packed?

I guess everyone can notice that Downloading always takes much less time than extracting. I have decent i5 processor and normal Internet connection.

What’s the reason of Meteor packages packed so heavily in the age of broadband? Thousands of users lose thousands of hours of precious time because of that.

Oh, I don’t know if this is true for some parts of Germany or others areas in the world :joy:. You should also not forget, that a lot of people have contracts with limited traffic (f.e. mobile contracts)

Strange to hear that in 2017 :slight_smile: In the world of 3G, 4G, 5G and 1 Gbit. Is there any way to make it faster? Maybe provide some unpacking proxy in between on dedicated server?
