I have always found RIM's OS downloads incredibly slow, but I'm experiencing ridiculously slow SDK download speeds from the Momentics IDE. Speedtest.net says I am hitting about 45Mb/s, but the SDKs I'm downloading are barely hitting 250-300Kb/s.
I'm trying to download the 10.1 SDK standalone installer package too, but the download is saying 9 hours to completion!
As I say, I'm used to BlackBerry servers being very slow when download an OS version or the Desktop Software (or Link), but I need this upgrade today to stay on schedule, not next week.
Is this normal?

No, you should see much higher speeds than that. What country are you downloading from, what is your IP address and what day and time did you download? Feel free to send the country and IP info through private message if you don't want to post that here publicly.

I am facing the same problem.
I am trying to download sdk version 10.2 via momentics. The bandwidth is good but native sdk download is proceeding VERY slow.
Any solution to this ?

Very slow here too. BB speed is >70Mb/s but download speed for the SDK is currently under 1Mb/s.
Connecting from 22.214.171.124, attempting download from Momentics, so unsure exactly where it is fetching from!
