For the past week or so software updates have been silly slow from Apple. 2 days for IOS 8.1.3, one day for 212 meg iTunes 12.1, Apple TV can't finish downloading update. My home connection is 46 meg Centurylink. First call to Apple had them blame my connection then after a remote screen session saw the 46 down and said oh their servers are busy. So today same issue, I tried to contact Apple again and got the extended wait time message so something is going on, I researched this problem and found a fix for me. I just installed a VPN program and my IOS download went from 2 days to 46 minutes, which is normal download time last week in the past for me from Apple. What is going on here any ideas?
