I'm trying to set up a non-producing node for my application to query data from the blockchain.

I started synchronizing since 3 days ago, however, only 5 million blocks have been downloaded so far.

It seems like blocks produced are faster than blocks being downloaded.

I used the peers from privex.io to synchronize with.

My hardware specifications are:

vCPU : 2


Hard Disk: 100 GB

Any advice to speed up node synchronization?

Ask for a download link from a BP for a higher block number. I remember seeing a link for 7m+ blocks.
