After some further troubleshooting with folks, I am not so sure it is a
speed issue so much as nginx dropping the connection. My workaround to
pre-download the images uses wget for the built-in retry w/ resume, and
I have not had any reported issues using that process.

Ansible uses curl, which is not handling the dropped http connection
well, resulting in a broken download.

I tried the above link and it works great for me, but so does the
artifacts server. Is the buildlogs server also going through nginx?
