Are you sure the problem is at our end? I'll paste the FAQ entry 
<http://www.debian.org/CD/faq/#small-dvd> which may or may not explain your 

  Why is my downloaded DVD image smaller than 1 GB when it should be larger 
  than 4 GB?
  Most likely, the tool you use for downloading the image does not have 
  large file support, i.e. it has problems downloading files larger than 4 
  GBytes. The usual symptom for this problem is that when you download the 
  file, the file size reported by your tool (and the amount of data that it 
  downloads) is too small by exactly 4 GB. For example, if the DVD image is 
  4.4 GB large, your tool will report a size of 0.4 GB.
  Some versions of wget also suffer from this problem - either upgrade to a 
  version of wget which does not have this restriction or use the curl 
  command line download tool: "curl -C - [URL]"
