    Exclamation Sloooow package download with Lucid Lynx

    Just installed Lucid Lynx. I have noticed that package downloads are really slow, the average speed is 30 Kb/s. A language package that downloaded before in less than a minute takes up to 20 now! Is anybody else experiencing slow downloads?

    Firefox and P2P are running at their usual speeds so it isn't my internet connection.

    Give it a few days and it should speed up. The servers tend to be slow just after a new release.

    Slow download are because millions people downloading same time. If you prefer to wait 2 weeks, then you see how fast will be download speed.

    Everyone that did the upgrade as soon as it was released. Like has already been said give it a week or 2 to calm down.

    Cool, I had this problem too and was very disappointed. I hope that happens.

    Indeed, its been the same for me and some others on the forum. Just a sign of Ubuntu's popularity! You can check that you're on the fastest mirror though. From Synaptic, go to Settings>Repositories>Ubuntu Software then click on "Download From">"Other">"Select Best Server".

    **EDIT*** Forums running so slow too, this entry just appeared and someone beat me too it! LOL

    Thanks all for the advise. I'll wait for things to settle a bit.
