Maybe you are downloading the package archive??? Try the .torrent seed files supplied on the Ubuntu homepage.

No, he's downloading the proper iso file...

OP: What exactly are you trying to do? Download the iso or install ubuntu?

Ok, so you're installing using Wubi and you've decided to give it 10GB of disk space. Is it downloading the disk image, or has it skipped that and gone straight to installing?

If it's downloading a fresh image then it might take a while if you're on a slow connection, as it'll be a 700MB download. After that the actual installation shouldn't take any more than about half an hour.
