Many factors, such as the connection type and network traffic, affect download speed. This table provides estimated download times for different file sizes at typical connection speeds. The estimates assume ideal network conditions, your actual download time can be longer.
For faster downloads, avoid peak hours (9am to 6pm Eastern time).
Some products, typically applications that are about 1 GB or larger, require that you have a a DSL or faster connection for download. For example: Photoshop CS Extended (1.1 GB), Photoshop Elements (1.5 GB), Creative Suite Design Premium (5.0 GB).
If you still have trouble downloading, please let us know!
Started downloading trial of Web Premium 5.5; started out great; said about 3 hours; got to 54 minutes and stopped; I tried pausing it and starting it again, now it says 3 hours again, but its still not moving. What should I do?
I have a license key but I have to download the CS6 Design and Web Premium trial version and then enter the key because I am in school. But, once it downloads 10.28%, the Adobe Download Assistant freezes. It goes no further. I have been trying to download this software for the past three days! I need this for my classes.
palaNewZealand the times listed in the original post are estimates depending on the speed of your network connection. It should also be noted that your download speeds are not only dependent on the speed of your connection to the Internet. They also can be affected by the amount of traffic on servers between you and the download server location as well as traffic on your own internal network.
Su sistema de descarga es una pesadilla, 10 horas para bajar 7350 mb. Deben usar algo más efectivo y atractivo, ya se me quitaron las ganas de renovar y estoy a punto de suspender la decarga.
He bajado archivos más grande que ese, desde mi cuenta en Microsoft con su sistema y lo más que he demorado son tres horas. Deben usar otro punto espejo o cambiar el gestor de descarga.

For those responding regarding the download estimate please remember that these are just estimates. As Tyler stated in the original post your connection type as well as network traffic, both internal and external, can greatly affect your download speed.
As long as the download is continuing to proceed it would indicate that you should obtain a successful download. If you are experiencing difficulties with the download being completed then please post the following a new thread in the Trial Download & Install FAQ - http://forums.adobe.com/community/download_install_setup/ada_faq?view= overview:
Excuses! Shameful! Downloads from Adobe take me 20 to 40 times longer for the same size file (2 GB for Photoshop Elements is about the size of a major upgrade or big photo set over my DSL network, yet is taking 10 hours instead of 10 or 20 minutes!) I am sure the Adobe servers are inadequate, and need upgrading.
I have the exact same problem as MuhammadXaLy
I have no trouble what so ever with my connection, but the download seems to be stuck at a certain point. I've been waiting for a couple of hours, thinking maybe it's a glitch in the Assistant, and it does download the package. But no, it keeps saying 6 hours. You can Imagine this is EXTREMELY frustrating. I have no problem exchanging HD movies of a couple of Gig's to customers.
This is just one fail in a long list of customer fails I've experienced since buying a licence. Adobe really needs to adres this. You can make great products, but if you fail to support it, the word get's around.
p.s Jeff A Wright, your link isn't working.
Thanks for the update Iggy.hart I have updated the link in post #12.
Unfortunaely the numerous times I have tested the trial downloads on both my home network and the Adobe network I have had no difficulties and the downloads have occured in a reasonable amount of time.
SB Bill and Iggy.Hart if you both would like to indicate which ISP you are using I can branch the discussion out to another thread. This will allow us to probe more if it is a specific ISP or server between you and the ISP which might be causing difficulties. I would also be curious to know if it depends on the time of day you are downloading the trial.
Thanks, Jeff. I use Impulse Internet. My DSL download speed per www.speedtest.net is 0.71 mB/s, which means a 2 GB file should download in 3000 s, or 50 minutes. My time with the Adobe website was over 8 hours! I experienced this same long time starting at 9 AM and on a second try at 10 PM.
Hello- I have been trying for three days to download with CS6 Web and Design AND Master Collection but neither will download- I have a key for school but am getting very frustrated. I have an excellent internet connection so I do not understand what's going on.
Hello, I have been trying for two days to download with CS6 Web and Design and Master collection but neither will down load. I had the Adobe Flash player until a technition put in a new hard drive. Since then I have not been able to us Adobe. Why will it not down load?
Hi everyone- I figured it out! I downloaded to my desktop instead of the recommended folder, and I changed my computer settings so that it wouldn't go to "sleep mode" or turn the screen off at all, and it worked! Took nine hours but it worked.
Hello, I just posted the thread below on another thread asking questions about downloading Adobe products.
Are you using Internet Explorer Browser to download Adobe products, if so, it will not work. Download Google Chrome and, then
download the software. I spent three weeks trying to download with Internet Explorer Browser and the downloads would get stuck.
I decided to try another Browser and the downloads complete in 30 minutes.
Lets put it this, Internet Explorer was not working for me, although, Google Chrome does work for me. Try another Internet Browser!
I was downloading Master Collection using Firefox, and noticed that things had slowed considerably. First, I inactivated my defense software. Not much help. Then, I uninstalled a plugin that Avast had installed (with permission) in Firefox. The download rate lept up by a factor of 10 or so.
I really depends on what your download rate is, what browser your using, and how fast your computer is. I usually use firefix, because it's dependable realiable and has no lag issue (for me atleast). If you have good optic internet, then the download rate should be much faster then your normal average day download speeds. Clearing your cookies and cache is also a good way too increase your speed as well. Also, if your stuck, cancel the program out entirely, restart your pc and re-download it.
