    Has anyone else noticed this?

    Yesterday I tried to download my phones firmware direct from apple, and it had 5 hours remaining?

    Then today I am currently downloading iTunes 10.01 for mac and its going at 5kb/s.

    Just so you know I was downloading the firmware at college, and I'm downloading iTunes here at home. Both places have very fast internet :/

    I doubt it's apple. I think I was getting 80kb/s downloading iTunes 10 a couple days ago, I'm not sure exactly, but it only took like 10 minutes

    It has nothing to do with Apple, it depends on yor internet connection.

    No Apple servers are really fast! Firmware files download at 1.5-3 MB/s for me in 1-2 minutes and iTunes movies download at the same speed.

    Out of interest were do you live? You might be a long distance from apple's server(s).

    I'm in the UK, so I guess they don't have UK mirrors :/. I think it just depends what time you try, I just tried about an hour and it took only 5 mins to download 4.1.

    It is most likely your connection. I get about 140kb/s on my ipod and even more on the computer.
