This is another thing that continues to bug me about ESET. Whenever I make a new install, of ESS (v4.0.437...with default virus database 4075) and then go and get all the updates, it takes a good 5 minutes just to download the 24MB batch of available updates. Why is ESET still not providing the updates via any updates servers within the U.S. ?? - and please, do not even tell me that they are. There is no way a 24MB batch of updates would take 5+ minutes to download from a server within the U.S. especially since I have about a 4.6~4.8Mbps (approx 500~600KB p/s) Cable connection. If I were to be downloading updates from a updates server within the U.S. the whole 24MB batch of available updates would take less than a minute even if there some minor traffic bottlenecks.
