I was really looking forward to upgrading from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 for all the promised features.
Unfortunately the initial process which claimed to take a few seconds to complete appears to be taking forever. The screen simply shows a whirling dot "in progress indicator" as illustrated here.
My wireless connection to the Internet has supported downloads at ~70 Mbps rate continuously until I started the Windows 10 update over the Internet using the "Get Windows 10" task on my Taskbar which said my upgrade was ready. The process has been going on for over an hour and according to my Windows 8.1 Wireless Network Condition Status display only 27 MB of data has been received by my computer.
I think this indicates an EXTREMELY slow data download from Microsoft servers. At this rate it will take several days just to download what Get Windows 10 screen says will be 3 GB of data.
Are other end users also seeing this very slow update rate for the initial download?
