Last night I needed to download a 364MB update file.
I was totally surprised that according to Safari that it was going to take nearly ten hours!
I knew it wasn’t my end as my connection was working fine. I even checked by downloading the 666MB iOS 4.3.5 update from Apple, and though it was nearly twice the size it only took three minutes from the iTunes servers.
Putting it down to the remote server, I left it to download overnight. Reminded me of the time when I was less fortunate and didn’t have the speed of fibre.
Came down the next morning to find that the download had failed to download properly.
So I set it go again, expecting that it would take a fair few hours again…
Nope did it in a couple of minutes!
Putting it down to the remote server having issues last night.
