:mad: iTunes is pissing me off. It took 3 hours to download a 1.4GB TV episode from Itunes. Took 2 hours just to download 4.0.2for my iPhone4 which is under 400MB. I have Verizon Fios which is extremely fast. 30MB/Sec download & 5MB/Sec Upload and 100% dedicated home fiber optic that does not slow down. I can download a 4GB file from netflix and other sites In under an hour but not with iTunes. I called apple support and got the run around telling me to reboot and unplug my network cable and plug back in, **** that we all know won't work. I called Verizon to see if the were capping my Apple bandwidth speed, and they informed me they do NOT cap any websites speed. Both my laptops are doing this so I know it's not on my end. I use to be able to get a TV episode from iTunes in 30 minutes which is still a little slow but way better then 3 hours.
Anyone else experience this iTunes Dial up speed lol

How fast is your computer? Prolly not an issue... But I notice the slower the PC the slower iTunes works.. But then again iTunes is a snail....

iTunes has always done that to me. every now and then it will literally take hrs to download something (Movie/TV Show) that usually takes minutes. Not often but it annoys the $#!t out of me when it does.
