    I mean, whassup ?

    In the past several weeks I have noticed how everything has surely dramatically slowed down on everything "Apple".

    Now I discover even the iPhone update is taking forever to download. Movies in iTunes crawl like it's a joke.

    How many of you have noticed this generalized disaster ?

    I am not dreaming: I can use two homes, two separate providers to check these things without having to deal with the b/s like "it's your system" or "it's your provider" and so on. Fact is: it's just a mess.

    Can you post some figures? My downloads are normal for my connection speed (only 3 Mb/s here at home) so what do you mean by "crawl"?

    I am talking about download speeds well below 1.5Mbs even though I get 5+MBS anywhere I go except Apple related stuff.

    I mean, I hope your realize this at least for Apple Software update, we are talking pre-historic dial-up type speeds ?!

    iTunes makes no mistery of it all: it tells you exactly the download speed you are getting and in recent months it's gone down down down down. I used to be able to get 6-7mbs on it..

    Prehistoric dial-up type speeds? Uh huh. So you are saying the fastest you can download from Apple is 5KB/s? I'm calling BS.

    And I just downloaded a 45MB software update from Apple in about 15 seconds, so I think it's fine.
