So I'm sitting in my hotel room (Hilton) in Chicago and attempting to download an episode of Heroes via iTunes. I began the process at the Admiral's Club in New York using my T-Mobile Hotspot subscription and carried on here.
Progress report: 179.3MB out of 470.4MB - 3 hours remaining!
That's right...3 hours. Who has 3 hours in a hotel room to spare? (and if I had begun this process outright, it would have been 5 hours)
Given the massive and continuous shifts to more access, heavier file sizes, paid downloads of multimedia etc., many of which happen on the road, shouldn't both the hotel chains, but most definitely in this case, NBC et al be investing in faster connections and supersized servers respectively?
