Just downloaded the latest Nvidia Graphics card drivers for my computer version 270-61, 104mb in about a minute at about 1.4MB/sec from Nvidia in the US.

Nice! :D

Though AFAIK the nVidia stuff is cached locally by Akamai.

Yeah the nvidia drivers are always super fast for me on xtra, in fact I believe it's the first download i've ever had to hit a full 2.0MB/s :)

104mb? Not very big?

So true, but that is not the case in point.

nVidia use Akamai caching so you probably downloaded it locally.

A lot has to do with what ever your plan is, what you are getting and where its coming from, time of day,any bottle necks / Server outages in some server(s) over seas etc.

Most places I get around 1.3MB/s to 1.8MB/s Technet (MS) when something new has not just come out, EG: new version of Windows or Office it's quite regular at 1.7MB/s

I'm just downloading iOS 4.3.2 and hitting 3.3MB/s :p

Edit: 666MB in about 3 mins! And it hit 3.4MB/s towards the end.
