Hey,

Just installed a clean boot from an ISO I made via the official download and everything is great apart from downloading - its really slow and seems to take ages downloading any upgrades from the Windows update section or even the metro updates ?

What gives any anyone else had this problem - solutions?

Cheers

Hi,
I am having the same problem. I went to download some apps and hit the update button on the existing apps. That was 3 hours ago and nothing has changed. All the apps still say downloading.....

Any idea why they are not downloading? I have a fairly quick download speed. Hour long episodes download in around 10 minutes.

Cheers

It's Patch Tuesday, servers may be getting hit a little harder than usual. My patch download was slower than normal but still bearable.
