There are usually issues with cloning large repositories over http. this can be due to web server settings, the backend and etc.
Well today I had to clone a big repo off a phabricator instance and I was getting “error: RPC failed; curl transfer closed with outstanding read data remaining” all the way.
after lots of try I found this solution posted on stackoverflow which seemed to be working in my case.
Hope it can help you too if you are looking at this page right now.
$ git clone http://github.com/large-repository --depth 1
$ cd large-repository
$ git fetch --unshallow
