Is it me or is the d/l speed from Live slow.  When I d/l the Need for Speed demo it took me over a 45min to get the game.  I think the footprint was like 948mbs.  

Anyone else see such slow d/l?

Seems fast enough to me. Is there a way to check the speeds through the Dash? And if so, did MS adjust however they calculated it from the Xbox method? I know that was always far slower than testing through the PC.

No known way that I know of to check how quickly you're downloading anything off of Live. For that matter, there's no way to get an ETA or even a pause/resume when you're downloading either.

I noticed that an almost one GB download of NFS demo took as long as the MI3 trailer. Not sure why since it is roughly a tenth of the size. They may implement bandwidth throttling on thier side depending on the size of the file.

21 MB a minute is SLOW?  
That's about 360KB per second :shock:
