Why would it be faster?
I'm trying it too and it's faster not as fast as it normally would be though. Looks like it might take 2 hours. There is no time estimate when using gibMacOS.

From estimates this is the biggest macOS release in terms of GBs of data. It's going to be bogged down for hours. Why not just wait till later this evening ? Apple will not run out of downloads the way that E-Tailers run out of Ryzen CPUs within minutes. There are also more people on the net in general due to the pandemic so that is also a factor here.
Game theory: nobody's going to cooperate as they can't trust the other(s) to do the same!
I too am switching to gibMacOS as suggested by xillio, though, it's definitely faster.
