The serious storm on the East Coast of America is affecting the download speed for some people.
From Europe, some customers are seeing very slow download speeds. Others (such as in Asia) are not having any problems.
The problem appears to be that almost half the major Internet switches (monitored by the Internet Traffic Report) in the USA are down (see below), and rerouting traffic through the West Coast, causing them to overload and slow down.
So... my apologies if you're currently having trouble using Magnatune ... hopefully the storm will end soon and the Internet will heal itself.
You can see the problem at the Internet Traffic Report, which reports a large number of major switches as RED - DOWN.
