I have the same problem here in perth
I think it is because cnet doesn't want to have their content cached locally in order to get acurate download numbers for advertising
I'm in Melbourne Australia and have noticed a significant slowing of the podcast's download time in recent months. Windering if anyone else thinks that BOL is getting slower to download?
Today's ep 695 is downloading now, it's 19.8MB and is taking over 22 minutes.
Also downloaded this morning (and started at the same time) was MacBreak Weekly 47MB and it took under two minutes.
So I know it's not my connection.
BOL's downloads used to be super snappy, but these days seem quite sluggish.
Just thought I'd put it out there and see what other thought.
