Yes, it must be the fault of my windows PC, my stupidity, my internet provider and/or my router and not on Apple's side. The fact that I just downloaded Photoshop CS6 in about three minutes and iTunes is going to take 3 hours is simply, why???
Same issue here - I am struggling to download anything at more than 500-700kB/s (I'm on a 100MB connection) - and I dont think thats anywhere near your 7 Mbps! :O(
Its been rubbish for ages yet Apple say there is no problem. Just wish others would confirm how fast they can download anything from the store!
I have to agree with the other posters. I've been getting increasingly frustrated with Apple's download speeds, and I also have had no issues with any other sites that offer streaming and downloading. I would agree that it is my ISP if my speeds were slow across the board. Consequently, I've been renting films from alternate sites, and I'll continue to do so until Apple fixes this issue. It's entirely too frustrating to try and rent a movie for the evening only to find you'll have to wait 4 hours just to watch it.
