See Store download speed in iTunes 7 Apps
Whenever the Downloads list shows up under the STORE section in iTunes 7, and the downloads have actually begun so that there are not little slashes of blue filling the bar, you can click on the grey text under the bar. When you do, it will change from saying, for instance, "48.2 MB of 402.3 MB - 24 minutes remaining" to "48.2 MB of 402.3 MB - (15.3 kb/sec) 24 minutes remaining" (or whatever).

Just a simple and cool way to see your download speeds in iTunes 7!

thanks for the tip, i was actually wondering how to do that. only problem i have is that it is very inaccurate, in my case by overestimating the download speed by quite a bit. e.g. it's telling me that it's downloading at 1.1Mb/sec when it's more like 100-200Kb/sec.

actually, it seems like it gives you a download speed at 10x what the actual rate is. right now i'm getting 200kb/sec and it's telling me 2mb/sec. either a bug or i am bad at math (more likely).

It is bits per second (bps) not Bytes (Bps) - one Byte is 8 bits, so there is your factor of 10.

THis ist he same behaviour Safari downloads window used to have - though they have changed it to always show time and speed now.

Actually unless Apple made a typo they are reporting the rate in bits per second (little b not big B). Like people weren't confused by the both already.
