    How To Download Windows 8.1 Faster?


    Hello, I am looking to download and install Windows 8.1 Pro Preview on my XPS. So, I went to Microsoft Website and started downloading the x64 English but when I looked into its speed I was just Shocked . Its Downloading at 1.2 MBPS which is just unbelievable. I am paying around $30 P.M to get the most speed from my Internet but here its very-very slow as compared to my other downloads. I usually get around 14-15 MBPS download speed at other downloads but why is the Microsoft Download so slow?

    Please Help me, I need the Legit Version from MS that's why I can't download from Torrent otherwise I downloaded it from Torrent Only.

    Thanks..............

    Many factors on the download speed. If you try it again, you may get a different link and a faster download. Different times of the day and how busy that server is. It may not be the server and how busy the overall internet is or your ISP's link to the internet that will also affect download speed.

    I've had sites (other sites not this site) that I started to download and it was very slow. I aborted the download and restarted and the second time it was much faster.
