Mac Specs: iMac i5 2.7GHz OS X.9.4 and OS X.10

For xample I have ADSL2+ which can run up to 24Mbps. Because of distance from telephone exchange and old copper wires, get around 9Mbps. When downloading, a good speed is 1MB per second. 1GB = 1000MB = 1000 seconds = about 16-17 minutes per GB. 6GB would take me about 100 minutes, getting close to the two hours.

And as RazOrEdge points out, slower if the download from the server is heavy.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
