When I started my download it said it was going to take about 8 minutes. At this point I am 302 mb in and it says 72 minutes remaining. I'm curious about what kind of download speeds everyone got.

I didn't time it or anything, but I'd say about 15-20 minutes for me.

I have also been waiting for a long time and its still going. Now of course they likely wouldn't, but if they had a p2p seed going this wouldn't be a problem for anyone.

When I upgraded iTunes last night, it started going really fast than about 5 minutes later it went to 3 minutes remaining to 45 minutes. So I closed it and restarted and it came down in 6 minutes or so.

Right at launch mine started at 1MB/s but now it won't get past 70kb/s download speed. 2 hours remaining. Has been 2 hours remaining since the 50mb mark. Now I'm at 300.

That was my first thought. It would also greatly lessen the load on their servers. There could even be an opt-in for background seeding during normal use for us good samaritans out there.

Why are some people like 73 hours etc? that's crazy

Mines 83 mins left and I started about 10mins ago (when it said 2 hours, but clearly half an hour hasn't passed in 10mins)

So far I'm 330MB into a 976MB update, been going for an hour. All I want is iTunes 10.5 :mad::D

Got 3 OS X updates then I can begin to download iOS5.

I'm generally on 35MB broadband, but given the HUGE number of people downloading, I know the problem is not at my end, doesn't make the wait any more bearable though! :(

I just downloaded 191M in 5 minutes... of course it was Safari and the Security Update.

I guess a completely different server; possibly at a different colo.

Yup. The direct links to the iOS downloads are also faster so I'm going the "restore" route.

How odd. I'm at about 75% after 2 hours or so. I'm also going through my HTC Evo's wifi hotspot over 3G.

I'm getting a steady 300KB/s

530MB+/774MBs currently after roughly 30mins. 13 mins remaining.

Good luck downloading, everyone.
