I don't know. I hope it's smaller than 1 gig, or else I'm going to have to delete a few games off my HDD...

The time it takes mainly depends on your connection, and if you're using your laptop as a wireless bridge it's going to take a lot longer than if your console was connected through an Ethernet cable.

 

Oh sh*t .I use my laptop as a bridge.How long do you think it will take ?I have 1mbps connection

Go to www.speedtest.net and choose to test your connection to one of their servers in the US that's somewhere near the XBL servers (I don't know the location, but if you're in the UK just choose somewhere in the mid-US). When you've done it, post here and let me know what the Download speed is. It won't b very accurate but is probably the best estimate we can get on the time.Off top of my head, I'd say downloading for two hours, maybe more over a wireless bridged connection from the US.

With that speed you're likely going to be looking at several hours of waiting unfortunately.

1600 points? Damn, that's a lot. Also, I just got an email from R* saying it will be released 12 noon EST time.

I could also get 100/5 mbit, but it would cost around $60/m.

Wikipedia says Microsoft's Xbox Live exclusive servers are in Seattle, WA (USA). Unless they use distributed servers (and it would sure help if they did) it might be more realistic, especially for those outside North America, to do the speed test to Seattle instead of your nearest server.

I've always received my Xbox Live downloads extremely fast.. basically near maximum speed, for example yesterday I got the second L&D trailer (55mb) in roughly 40 seconds.. so that should make it 24 minutes for a 2GB download.

If you count everybody across the world downloading at the same time maybe it's an hour for you, still not bad.

Damn, even at 2500 miles... Well as somebody said, it's going to be WAY slower because of all the people downloading it... Whatever, I'll just play Fallout while it downloads. After all, you can still play offline while downloading.

 

Edit: To halfway around the world.

And I'm paying $79.99 a month for this sh*t? f*ck off.

And it's actually only one tenth of what it says - my top d/l speed is around 100-150kbps.

Well im exspecting it to take around an hour and a half ish on my connection maybe 2. its more your upload speed that holds people back. even though my connection is almost 3 meg it will max out at just over 300kbs sec because of my upload speed. but i find xbox servers to be quicker than downloading on the PC for some reason.

Don't think mine is too bad to be honest, hopefully it wont be too badly affected by the amount of traffic downloading at the same time:

Don't forget that's a UK server you're testing to. Testing to one near Seattle will give you of the speeds you're likely to get, the one you've done just shows the capabilities of your connection close range.

Also there's the factor that there will be a ton of people downloading this at once, and us Brits are likely to suffer as Americans are closer they'll be getting better speeds than us due to location.

Again, if you're in the UK you'll need to Speedtest to a US server, somewhere near Seattle as that's where the main XBL servers are apparently. Testing to the UK just shows what your connection is capable of from servers that are close to you.

Is it only the people living in the UK that download from Seattle or is it all of Europe? If only UK, where do the other europeans download from?

I know I should probably know this by now, but when can you start downloading TL&D on XBL (what time)?
