Increase Kali Linux Download/Upload Speed from 100kb to 2mb

Have you ever try to install a new package, using Kali aptitude manage.

You might noticed that the speed you are getting in Kali is very less as compared to the actual speed which you might get in IDM etc

By default, Kali source list uses HTTP protocol. Just change it to HTTPS

Also, install a package using this command (just 149kb package)

apt-get install apt-transport-https

This package will set a redirection policy to HTTPS

Note: only change the protocol not the subdomain.

Source list path: /etc/apt/sources.list
Source list example:

deb kali-rolling main contrib non-free

deb-src kali-rolling main contrib non-free

Also please note that, 1st install package,
And then edit source list

For Indian users i recommend this Kali update repo: deb kali-rolling main non-free contrib

open with nano and put a # before both lines
Then add the line which I gave
Save it
Update :wink:

Put this line in /etc/apt/sources.list

It is hosted on cloudfare DNS network and gives more speed than the above update repo.
additionally check this:

Do this and you are good to go experiencing high speed over cloudfare dns network.

Thanks @D4rkhunt3r :slight_smile:

Both the source list works fine in my case.

Though I didn’t find any difference in speed as getting 1.8 - 2.1 mb speed with both the source list
