Maybe you can use a download tool for that.It is large to 120MB.

What software do you use to download OpenOffice.org? Do you use Internet Explorer? If so, try Firefox or a bittorent client such as uTorrent.

If you use uTorrent, then you will choose the P2P downloads

Because so many people download OOo, it is available through many identical servers which they call mirrors.

You have to use a mirror to download OOo, but you don't have to worry about the mirror. It just happens.
