Office 2016 Direct Download links

Office 2016 now uses a series of FWLinks that always point to the very latest official builds. The downloads are SKU-less, which means you can use these to activate via Office 365 subscription, Volume License, or Perpetual License. These packages contain the base app, MAU and the licensing helper components.  The following links download the respective software.  While perpetually updated direct links are great to have, there is no way to determine what version it is until the full pkg is downloaded.  That’s an expensive download if you have limited bandwidth.  After the update from 15.15 to 15.16, a few links had lingering 15.15 versions still downloading.

There are 3 CDNs they are available from: Puerto Rico, Dublin, and Singapore.  For the US the Puerto Rico CDN would be quickest.

    This is very handy; thanks! Do you know if there’s a similar link for OneNote 2016?

    True, that is available. The recipe is pulling the install from the auto update feed which for now, is a complete application. With Office 2016 suite apps being so huge, Microsoft is moving to a Delta update model, possibly in December, to alleviate bandwidth concerns. I don’t know if OneNote is going to be included in that model or not but things may change in regard to getting a full install of OneNote in the future.
