    There was about a 15-20 minute delay before it started to download. Then, the DL itself took about 10 minutes. I'm now 15 minutes into the install, with 19 minutes showing on the install screen.

    It still says "Waiting" - waiting for what?

    I'm estimating that it should take about 97 weeks and 3 days to download on a 0.00001 bit per hour connection, should be all right!

    Can you pause your DL so mine speeds up. It's running a little slow.

    I have a 20+Mbps connection and it downloaded in about 35 minutes. That's about half my real world max speed (4MB/s).

    Is there a way to see how long the download is going to take from LaunchPad (since I already have Lion installed)?
    I don't think it's really downloading it… the progress bar hasn't moved and it's been "downloading" for an hour now…

    Go to your "Purchases" and click on Download for ML.

    There are a dozen factors that may or may not contribute to that. Local content providers, your modem, your router, your ISP, etc. Hopefully it'll start and soon you can enjoy your $20 upgrade :)

    The download took approximately one hour, and the installation took approximate 55 minutes. Now using dictation for the first time on this forum to see how that works, and thus far, it works pretty good with just a few hick ups now and then. ;)

    Sat "Waiting…" for about two hours, then logged out, unplugged my firewire LaCie drive that has a Time Machine backup on it (which causes me loads of problems with system hang-up), logged back in, and then it started downloading right away
    -_-

    Not done yet

    I am stuck on DSL. Not so hot for speed. I am an hour and a half in and have just about 1.5gb downloaded so far. I am figuring it's gonna take me about 4 hours total for the download.

    It started downloading when I "purchased" it again (but it said I already own it so it won't charge me) but that started the download after I left my computer for 3 hours and all it did was go to sleep and do nothing.

    Now it estimates 1 hour remaining, but it's been at it for many hours now and it always said 1-2 hours, so I doubt it will be done within an hour… Slow as hell!

    Took me 20 minutes to download. Much better then the days of waiting all day for FedEx to show up with the DVD.
