My System Specs

Default Technet download speeds

Anyone else experiencing sub par download speeds from technet? I thought it was just when I first subscribed when windows 7 came out, everyone was downloading it so that's why it was slow (their servers couldn't take the load) but here, months later, downloading an ISO of XP, and I'm only getting 300KB/sec???


Anyone else getting this? I have never had acceptable speeds from technet so far... all 300 or less, should be getting my maximum (800).. I mean the service is a great value and all, but waiting like this is kinda lame.

I'm getting a max of 550 which doesn't blow, but certainly isn't top speed either.
