I am so surprised on how slow downloads are on the Wii U. It took me over 2 hours to download Nintendo Land and around 45 mins to downloads the MH Demo. Now i know its not my connection speed test on my laptop or smart phone are around 20-30mbps so i really dont know whats wrong.

Now as i type this message i am installing Nintendo Land.

And its taking forever. At the time of the pic it was less than hour and a half now its 1:45 remaining. I wonder how long would it take for a 15GB game to install? 2 weeks?

I used to complain about how bad PS3 install times and download speed was but its way better than the Wii U. Maybe this is just another reason why the Wii U is failing in sales.

Yeah, it's really bad. I prefer to download games, but I could drive to the store and back twenty times during the course of a single download on this system.

I don't know; I've had things to fast(ish) and had things go slow.

The Monster Hunter demo took me 30 minutes for download+install. The FIFA demo took almost 90 minutes for the same.

How can it be my internet when i can download a 10GB game of steam in less than 2 hours? Or a full size PS3 game that is around 20GB in around 5 hours.

And how does internet speeds affect install times on the Wii U?

Wii U has pretty long install speeds and online speed is a lot lower than competing platforms.
