Very slow downloads from App Store on mobile data - gives up after a while

Hi there

 

I've tried several times to install apps, e.g. PayPal, but the install is painfully slow and I either stop it or it gives up. 

 

If I try when connecting to my home broadband, the apps install in no time. 

 

I've tried a speed test, and I'm getting 8mbps, and I have no trouble browsing or any other data functions - it's just installing apps that's slow.

 

Not a big deal as I'll just have to install them when I'm connected via wireless at home, but I was just wondering what the reason was

 

Cheers, John
