How many MB is the Download. As 100-200 MB might be Ok but also if its one of those 2.9 MB programs and when you run them it starts to download the files is their a pause button as the phone is kinda used every 1:30 hours and our broad band is 2 MB and on wireless

The full installers are;

Windows - 67MB
Mac - 81MB

The download server supports resuming, so if you have a download program which also supports that then you don't need to worry about being disconnected.

The installer is a self-expanding installer which means when you run it the files contained within will become uncompressed for using with your operating system.

In a nutshell - an installer compressesd files to make them easier/quicker to download and install.
