    With 20Mb/s download it should take a few hours. I have that too and it took 6 hours to download 10049 update. But as was said earlier, it will also depend on the time of day.

    Are you guys/gals using WiFi or Ethernet to download the iso? It is surprising to see a 20 mpbs speed take longer or the same amout of time it takes a 3 mpbs speed to download a 3.92 gb file.

    I use Ethernet. It took 6 hours for 10049.

    Minimum Time

    We have a 20 Mbps connection. So, I don't know how good it will do.
    8 bits (b) = 1 Byte (B) >> 20Mb/s = 2.5MB/s

    If an ISO is 2.5GB (2500MB)** >> 2500/2.5 = 1000 seconds

    It will take a minimum of 1000 seconds to download.

    As a rule, you are not likely to sustain maximum download speed during any given download, due to varying network conditions.
    Also, not all of your download speed is used for the file you are downloading.
    There are additional bits included in your download data stream (e.g. error checking, delivery IP address, etc.).

    So it will take longer than 1000 seconds to finish.

    Microsoft snuck one on me today. Yes, I signed up for the Windows Insider Program from the day it was introduced, but I opted out of installing the technical preview. Anyway, they sent out an update to install the latest 10 tech preview to one of my Windows 7 laptops. I had no idea what the update was about until I got on here and asked someone. Microsoft is being very sneaky. I will only install the finished version of 10.

    What does this update(s) achieve exactly? Does anyone know for sure?

    I'm using WiFi on my Windows 7 Laptops and Ethernet on my Windows 8.1 Desktop.

    I don't think anybody knows for certain. But there are plenty of conspiracy theories. It looks like it will trigger something when the 10RTM is out. Maybe a message or a link for an upgrade. It is probably wise to keep an eye on it and get rid of it when it gets bothersome.

    Is that something to do with the update?
