I DL Far Cry 1 and it took 5+ hours. I ended up going to bed and forgetting about it. I think it was 3.5Gb but I have the slowest DSL AT&T has.

Not that this will help you with your problem at all but, live varies in performance for me. I can download a 1 gig demo in 10 minutes or less somedays, or over an hour on others. So I am assuming most of the time the problem isn't on our end, but on microsofts.

I've noticed since the update we had, my downloads take alot longer than they should.
My average DL speed is around 20mb/s but when i'm dowloading off the marketplace it feels around 5mb/s.

It can vary depending on how busy xbox live is or if MS's servers are acting up. But is your d/l speed bad on your computer also? Or just the 360? Maybe your 360 has a bad connection? I'm not sure really, sorry man.

This does happen sometimes with Xbox Live. I always have a download of almost 25mbps and Netflix will once in a while run slow, due to MS or Netflix's end.

Your friend could easily have superior internet speeds.

Happened to me all the time before I upgraded.

You definitely have connection issues. My internet speed is 2.8 mb/s (yes, that slow), and that's about how fast I download things. You might want to switch to a wired connection if you aren't already using one. You can get a substantially long ethernet cable for $5 or so.

What the hell are you on about. He's on about downloading from the marketplace, not browsing the forums. And please learn how to write.

OT: is your ISP putting a cap on your download speed after a certain time?
