On my cable connection it took about 10-15 minutes.
A dialup user should expect a few hours, but nothing
unreasonable.

I spent 30+ hours downloading the WoW beta - that was
unreasonable. Worse part is...I only played it for about
10 hours before deciding I didn't like it. I am finding
EQ2 much more enjoyable - and I plan on subscribing.

It didn't give a size, but time-wise on a 512 broadband connection, took
me around about 6 hours to complete (that's from yesterday)

6 hours? On a 1M broadband connection it took me maybe 15 minutes.

This may have been related to some problems I had with the second DVD,
which just hung halg-way through. It's possible 6 hours was just because
it was downloading the content that it didn't get off the DVD :-|

Hour and a half on dialup.
