    I am downloading the new Windows 10 preview build (ISO), I have a very good connection but the windows 10 preview build is downloading at a speed of 10.6 KB/sec! I have tried restarting the download and resetting the connection and the router, it seems the problem is from Microsoft side since I even tried downloading other stuff and the speeds were really high.

    So, is this temporary? are there any other mirrors to download the ISO file? I do not wish to wait for 48 hours till it is downloaded with this speed..

    Could be because of high traffic. It is weekend after all, People have time to download. Maybe downloading during the week could be faster.

    It is indeed no doubt due to high traffic and bottleneck of servers hosting the files. Within 24 hours after the Windows 10 Consumer Event, over 170,000 new users registered to the insider program. So you have had 170,000+ new users, plus all the pre-existing Insiders who signed up since September... all trying to update to the newest Win10 Build in a short period of time.

    I have updated my PC, upgraded my HP Notebook and just upgraded my wife's HP Laptop.... all downloads and updated were slow, so it's not a rare occurrence.

    To be honest, I'm not surprised the downloading has been extremely slow, but what has surprised me is that the hosting servers for the new build have not crashed.

    Every time Steam has a holiday sale or when a new highly anticipated game is released, the servers get bottlenecked and a while back, some Steam servers crashed due to overload.

    Just need to be patient.

    there have been many fast ring previews before, and all have been decently fast. this time is ridiculous. 36 hours have only gotten 53%.
