What time PDT are OS X usually released?
Normally it is about 4 second before it is posted on this forum. So keep your eye on this message board.
Is it being released today?
Released Sept 30.
Today for me, tomorrow for you.
13.00 EST Weds approx 7 GB
OS X El Capitan launches on Wednesday September 30, 2015 at 10:00 AM PT, 1:00 PM EST
You sure it'll be 7GB? The GM was 6.07 GB.
Either way would take me less than 3 mins to download it.
HOW FAST IS YOUR CONNECTION?! HOLY ****.
This would be a few hours download time at least for me.
1Gbps, real world download speed around 150MB/s from software update,
(I know 1Gb/s = 125MB/s, but it does jump like that in MAS).
Apple has generously placed a CDN in our internet exchange.
Okay, maybe not 3 minutes but would be less than 15.
Did a test to see if I was still right and boy am I impressed..
it doesn't even take as long as the ETA.
Well, that's impressive.
My home connection gets about 1.2Mb/s on a bad day, and up to 6Mb/s on a good day. I think the line filter is bad or something.
Is that ADSL?
I don't think it still happens but I remember when someone would pick up the phone in the house
and I would throw a fit when the 3MB mp3 download failed..
It all depends on Apple's servers abilities to keep up with demand... you might find out it will take you longer than 3 minutes to download depending on how many people are trying to download El Capitan while you're downloading. Although I'm assuming you have wicked fast internet connection where you're at, you will most likely experience slower than expected download speeds. Something to think about...
From past experience of iOS updates and OS X releases, it depends if I get in line fast enough. If the download initiates before tunnel traffic gets busy, I usually get the usual max speed.
After couple minutes when everyone tries to download, the download speed slows a bit.
I guess my advantage would be a high capacity CDN serving a smaller city, therefore doesn't get affected too much from user loads. Apple does a great job caching at this node too. Drawback would be iOS updates take longer to show up.
Nice that you're able to get your download quicker Where I'm located.... not so much and since I will be working inside a lab, I won't get to my downloads until well after all of this has started so it will take me somewhere around 30 - 45 minutes even with my high speed FiOs internet connection...
Could you use a work computer to remote home to start the download?
Btw I'm always curious, seems like US internet bundle/cable packages all have different names.
Why are they so complicated anyway? Where I'm from, it's VDSL, 100M, 500M or 1000M, loud and clear.
Does FiOs mean a Fiber connection?
I'm behind a secure firewall.... can't access my computer from where I work so I will have to wait it out...I have to tolerate Windows machines where I work at....
it is what it is...
Do mobile signals penetrate the walls of the lab?
I love using Windows machine at work, gives me plenty of opportunity to get coffee.
Everything is locked down where I am at. I can't even bring my Macs or iPhone to work... we're talking about a totally secure working environment. Can't go into any more details due to the nature of my job....all I can say is that I really hate using Windows machines....
I'll just download the OS release when I get home from work
Fabulous, excuse our slowness in the US
I was planning on moving to the US.
But I refuse to live in a house without Google fiber.
awesome..... glad you're able to enjoy some serious download speeds....
You don't know the meaning of shafted until you've signed a contract with a Canadian telecom. True story.
