I received the info about the Virtualbox update on my machine at work today (added to sources.list).
Uuuh. Started this morning, and when i went home, still not downloaded. Cursed the crappy link to the Interwebs.
Now I'm sitting at home, very different ISP, very different netblock, and uuuh, same slowliness. And it is only the VirtualBox. All other packages came in properly at work, and now at home.
After 20 minutes, I have 443kB of downloaded data.

Could this be the first indication that Oracle wants to fsck with VirtualBox??

I was using virtual box too at one point, it's the program itself. It's slow and if you want to experience linux to the max, you'd have to install it onto your computer, that should speed up your update speed as well.
