I downloaded a few other things off the store and it was slow too. Then just tried downloading a video off the browser and it was at normal speed. So, it seems the store is experiencing some issues. I wonder if some of their servers are in the northeast. With all the power outages if some of their servers are out that would put more traffic on the others and thus the lag. Its a possibility anyway. Oh well, 264MB/6342MB and counting.
I'm just trying to go through life without looking stupid....its not working out too well.
