It always is faster in my experience, but there could be a problem
somewhere causing issues for you at the moment. Also, you're aware
that the first download of any file (in any region) from Cloudfront
can also be slower than using S3 directly? That's because the edge
servers have to fetch chunks of the file from S3 before they can send
it on to you.
