Traceroutes to the server might be an idea, can compare slow vs fast

It's all done now... hopped gateway and then the update was downloaded in 4-5 mins!

I did try a traceroute to a domain I found on a US Comcast tracert and it went through BT Faraday and on to BT Europe servers...

I want too, I really do... I'm awaiting some information from Pulse8.... I can't get into any contracts at the moment... I'm supposed to be moving at some point in the next 4 - 28 weeks laugh

Silly as that sounds!

You need to traceroute to the actual CDN server you are downloading from, the domain for the IP should be something like uklon***.aaplimg.com. This is going to be very different for someone on an US Comcast connection.

I did the traceroute to aaplimg.com thinking it would pick up the location itself, which it seemed too!

That's not right - aaplimg.com resolves to one of multiple IP's, none of which are a CDN server (they eventually redirect to www.apple.com)

You need to traceroute to the IP you are downloading from, and have a set of good vs bad.

Also seen this issue the past few days with app updates. If I come of WiFi and go onto 4G I get full speeds.

I had terrible speeds just now downloading IOS 8.4.1: estimated 4 hours. I killed the download, connected to a VPN (I have a collocated server in London) and the download completed in <8 minutes.

Connected via ptw-ag03 (I have to use an ag gateway for my IPv6 trial account to get its correct prefix assignment).

Yes I have a VPN and that did the same. Very annoying.
