    Hey,
    I am trying to download the windows 8 rtm 90 day trial. the download speed is aweful. i get 50kb/s from both softpedia and microsoft itself.

    with my download speed i should get at least 1000kb/s

    anyone know of any other legal mirrors for this download?

    edit: I have found a fast download of the US version so may try that Until I can get the uk version.

    Try using a download manager such as Flashget to speed up the downloading.

    Have you tried to download it in a different time when their servers are not overloaded? I managed to get my copy in about 10 minutes from MS.

    Yeah I also think trying at a different time would do the trick.:)
