    I have very good bandwidth at home and can usually download HD iTunes movies fairly quickly. When I try to download the 580 MB 4.0.1 update it fluctuates between 5-8 hours and takes over several minutes just to get to 1 MB.

    Are the servers overloaded?
    Is anyone else having this issue?

    I did mine this afternoon and it was very fast. 10 15 mins tops. For reference, I have cable internet running at 25Mbps d/l speed.

    There are several mirrors floating around. Mine was fast at only 15mins.

    But this site has direct links to Apple hosted files: http://ios.e-lite.org/
    Perhaps give it a try and see if your browser will download it any faster than iTunes.

    A few minutes, I think. I wasn't really watching and by the time I looked, my iPhone 4 was already restarting with the upgrade.
