    Currently running 10.10.5 Yosemite. Downloading El Capitan from iTunes store. Should it take 10 hrs to download.? This doesn't seem right.

    I tried that pause restart but it still took me 4 hours to download and another 2 hours to install ... it was so bad that I thought the install was hung up ... but it finished everything in 6 hours and 15 minutes for me.

    Its not just him, go to reddit and you'll see that people are getting incredibly slow downloads. I have a 50mbps connection and mine has been downloading since this morning and it fluctuates between 1-3 days remaining...Friggin horrendous

    Took me about 1.5 to 2 hours to download and install from factory reset.

    Hope it goes faster for you.

    It took me about 13 hours to download, because my ISP had a fault that caused problems with connections to Apple's servers.

    Not sure how a performance fault could be so specific, but it happened, so I'm not questioning the how or why, just glad it seems to be resolved.
