Battle.net client download fails

Mac Technical Support
I am unable to download the Battle.net Desktop App for my mac from the Blizzard site (https://www.blizzard.com/en-us/apps/battle.net/desktop). The download fails with "connection reset" after about 1.7MB. I have tried on two different computers and on both my home internet and mobile data with identical results.

I eventually found a link to a very old version here: http://dist.blizzard.com/downloads/bna-installers/322d5bb9ae0318de3d4cde7641c96425/beta.3/Battle.net-Beta-Setup-enUS.zip . I was able to update from there and have the client working properly now.
I was experiencing the same issue. When I try and download the app or game client, I get the network error message after about 900kb.

Above link worked for me. Pretty disappointing this issue wasn't addressed more directly, even if it is affecting a small amount of users. A simple message "If you're having trouble downloading the game, try this..." would work.

I had to hunt around to find this. Thanks Ededed.
