    Took me 2.5 hours for one purchased app to download, but usually it's lightning quick. Might just be your coverage at the time.

    my downloads are very fast but i do remember back when i first purchased it the downloads did take a little while to even show up. leading me to believe it was not connection speed but the problem did eventually go away

    I notice problems downloading apps over wifi. Some days they never start on the first try, and other days they download immediately. Though downloading them over 3G always works. But its slower if I don't have a strong data signal. Its really bizarre that it can tell the difference somehow.

    It's like the Market doesn't like wi-fi sometimes. I will get the same problem on occasion. If I am having the problem I turn my wi-fi off and then back on to re-establish a connection, then it will work just fine.
