View Full Version : Slow podcast download despite fast connection

I'm sitting on a campus connection- it is very fast. I stream hulu and netflix without ever having a problem. All other downloads (even iTunes songs/movies) are very fast.

My problem is despite that... podcasts take FOREVER to download. Like 1 hour for a 1 hour show. Like I said, even songs in iTunes load quickly... just not the podcasts. Any thoughts?? I've seen a lot of complaints about this online, but most have been resolved by people stopping torrents in the background or something. I don't have anything else downloading, just a few pages open, but not even loading. Has been an issue for a year or so - over many versions of iTunes.


Any suggestions would be great.
