Just signed up to Premium in Australia so I could use offline mode. So far it's taken over 30mins to sync 5 tracks which is ridiculous. Why so slow Spotify?

I love how with even this constant stream of issues the Spotify team is either too lazy or just doesn't care enough to even acknowledge this issue so we know they are looking into it. Even that would keep me waiting.

But this... Ignore-ance.

Slow sync to my iphone 4s (latest firmware etc)

 

Takes about 30mins to download 1 Album (ten tracks maybe) on my reliable 20Mbit connection.

 

Unacceptable.

Just wanted to post an update real quick.

 

I tried my luck from Germany last time I posted here. The problem seemes to be temp. fixed for me. I flew over from Germany to California (SF) for an internship. I currently stay in a hotel and have no problems at all with syncing new songs to my phone. The internet is even slower over here. (50mbit in Germany, 2mbit here, tested on speedtest.net) Still using WiFi to sync. Takes not even 30sec to sync a song.

 

So it seems to be an server/routing/server load issue.

Also having this problem. I am going to give spotify a month to fix this. If it is still this bad, I'm going to cancel my subscription, simple as.
I'm not willing to pay for a service that doesn't work properly.

In the time it took me to write my previous post, spotify synced over 100 songs. This got me thinking, could it be something to do with the songs being synced? Some albums take hours, others take seconds.
