    It will be a sad day if physical media dies anytime soon
    Downloading the W10TP upgrades is quite annoying.

    So why do it, Is someone twisting your arm? Downloading updates is great for me, it gives me something new to look forward to.

    There are a few JB HiFi stores around where I live, I can assure you physical media is not going to die in the near future, it's amazing the amount of people still buying it.

    Takes me 12 to 14 hours to download

    For some reason all downloads for MS are very slow for me (xbox game took 12 hours last weekend)
    Downloads from other places I can usually get about 1GB/hour (if I do it during the day)

    I'm sorry for this dumb comment, but, those are really slow download times. I have Vodafone mobile broadband with at least 7.2 Mbps. Attachment 19123

    would love to get that speed
    I woudnt like to do a speed test for mobile (I still live with a GPRS signal at home), not even suitable for checking emails
    when in nearest town I do get 4g, so no problems with that

    work seems to be starting on improving the BB, supposed to be sometime this year getting faster, so I might join the 21st century soon

    Why I get very slow download from MS, but ok from other providers is a mystery to me

    Using Ubuntu I've gotten much faster, up to 20Mbps for short spurts(about 5 seconds. I don't know how though, maybe it over rides, but being pre-paid it doesn't matter 5GB is 5GB just gone faster. I'm still deciding which ISP to use.

    You missed the point.
    It was a comment about Internet download speed.

    As to why I do it, MS doesn't send me W10TP DVDs.

    Oh okay, I'm on over 100mbs so it doesn't affect me much, it usually only takes around 15 minutes to download a new upgrade.

    It must be nice to get that sort of speed.

    Your "guesstimate" seems to indicate that you were actually averaging ~30 Mb/s on that occasion.

    It took ~80 minutes for b10074 to finish downloading here.
