    slow downloads from windows update and app store updates


    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

    Exact same problem, do not know the solution. Fairly good internet speed too.

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