How long will my purchase take to download?

Here are the average sizes for our various digital products that are PDF files:

• Digital Magazines :  50 – 120 MB
• eBooks:  300 - 750MB
• ePattern or eProject:  65.5 KB – 1.2 MB

The following table provides estimated download times for different file sizes at typical connection speeds. These estimates assume ideal network conditions. Your actual download time can be longer. For faster downloads, avoid peak hours (9am to 6pm Eastern time). The demand for our downloads can also be high the first week after we release a product release. 

Note: Reference the product page for all Interweave Download products for more specific information about file sizes.  It will help you make the best estimate possible.
