    SLOOOOW Google Play downloads

    Is it just me or what? Last few week small updates of a few megs or even a 35meg game download take forever and a day. While the rest of the web/internet is as fast as normal. and no im not being throttled yet this month.

    only google play is beyond slow

    You're not the only one. Normally I find it resumes its normal download speed when I cancel the download and press download again, if not after a couple of these cycles.

    Why aren't you using wifi? Do you not have any in your house? Relying on 3g for downloads is like trying to cross the Sahara on a large tortoise.

    Were talking about a 35meg game download, not 1.7GB of extra game data.

    If 3g can't handle 35megs at a decent speed..............
