Default Download speed for "Play" upgrade

Good evening,

I don't know whether this topic fits in this part of the forum but I just want to let you know that download of upgrades (e.g. PLAY) is awfully slow. I'm located in Germany and it took me more than an hour to download the PLAY upgrade. I have broad bandwith and that should be literally a task of not more than one or two minutes. Instead I get a download speed of just 90 - 100 kb/sec. Do you have alternative servers available to choose?

Best regards

We use Amazon AWS Servers, which are some of the fastest out there.

Some things that can slow down a download quite considerably:
- Real-time scanning software, which checks the files
- Concurrent other downloads / Internet usage
- ISP limitations

I've had some reoccurring drops with Telekom in the last few days.
Not sure if the other providers have similar issues, atm.
