    This is nothing new here, but as I am throwing a 27mb update onto my website, it is telling me the time is going to be an hour plus to get it uploaded. I tell you, it sure would be nice to have access that is a little bit more like a real network disk.

    I've been having major speed issues with my iDisk since last night. Very annoying.

    Not sure what is going on... :confused:

    I'm using Tiger and it's still painfully slow.

    I'm using Tiger. It did become a bit faster until today. But right now it's incredibly slow. Must be something with their servers, nothing we can do about it.

    Call your ISP and upgrade to a business-class connection.

    The bottleneck is your upload speed, not .Mac or iDisk.

    It was s l o w last night (24 hours before this post)
    I thought it should have been quicker...
    Maybe Apple are updating their servers in preparation for all the Video iPod and PowerBook G5 orders and interest they'll get! :D

    EDIT: And don't go telling me it's MY ISP, I am on the Oxford University network, which has a bandwidth to the internet of, oh I don't know, I never have reached it! I can D/L things at over 5 MBpS (though i think I could do more). And iDisk took AGES 24 hours ago!

    It doesn't matter how fast you can download something, but I see your point.

    Oxford may have upload speeds cranked down to curb piracy. Novel thought.

    I am running on Tiger and it is not my ISP. If you do the math 26mb in one hour that works to 7.6 Kb/sec. That is way too slow for any upstream connection. The problem is on .mac. Any FTP connection or remote disc would be much easier to handle. But .mac has me drinking the koolaid.

    Same issue here.. My work has an optical carrier signal to the internet, so I doubt it is my connection ;)
