Is anyone else getting extremely slow download speeds off of Xbox Live right now

I am in the Xbox Preview Program and I just got prompted to download the August update. The update is 350MB and it has been downloading for almost 40 minutes now! I have 50MB cable internet with a wired connection. This started last night with Destiny Beta, and I just figured that it was because everyone and their mother was trying to download it at the same time. But now with this, I am starting to get annoyed/worried.

I started downloading Plants Vs Zombies at 1130 am est on a 30MB cable connection. It's only 67% done and no one was home... Xbox Live is really slow today and was really slow yesterday.

I'm sure it has nothing to do with everyone downloading the Destiny beta.

I figured out my problem. It was the QoS in the router. I turned it off and my Xbox is downloading at full speed. What QoS does from what I understand is set priority to what ever is hooked up on your router.

Yep, started the Destiny download yesterday, went fishing for a few hours, came back and it was only 60% or so.
