How to get UE4 to load faster

Are you downloading the engine through the launcher, or are you getting the source files? Either way, faster internet? don’t use wifi if you can avoid it.

While attempting the treacherous feat of downloading UE4, I found myself waiting over 6 hours just to reach 4%, then to have all of that ended by my computer shutting itself off. How can I get UE4 to download faster than this?
