Just in the process of downloading the restoration image for my Surface Book but the download speed is absolutely horrible - sitting at around 9.6KB/s - this is the URL for where it is downloading from:

 

https://dl-proc.ds.microsoft.com/DSDownloadAPI/Download.ashx?cmd=1&DownloadFileID=9866292&DownloadKey=c3eccccc-da3a-4c66-aea9-9fe38059d6f5&SiteID=1&Mode=0

 

 

 

I haven't tried this with another connection but given Microsoft's size I'm doubtful that they've run out of capacity.

The link says bad request for me. Resolves to 65.54.120.200, and seems to come through the APE.

 

Can you provide a link to the page where you requested the download, as well as a traceroute to the server, wherever it's resolving for you?

 

Edit: Looks like Microsoft require a serial number, or for a device to be registered in order to download a recovery image. Makes it a bit harder to troubleshoot. This is the link I found: https://www.microsoft.com/surface/en-nz/support/warranty-service-and-recovery/downloadablerecoveryimage


 
 
 

You will find anything you want at MightyApe (affiliate link).

Are you using  your ISP DNS servers, or are you using Google/OpenDNS?

Yeah, you have enter in your serial number and you'll be able to download it. I cancelled it and retried resulting in the speed averaging around 120KB/s.

Using the DNS settings that Bigpipe assign to me automatically.

I got around 300KB/s for a Surface RT image. Both FF and Chrome gave 500 error, had to use IE.
