I ran across this post on the Windows 7 Team Blog and thought I’d pass on the information. It was previously announced that the download deadline for the Windows 7 beta was going to be January 23rd but this date has been extended. From the Windows 7 Team Blog…
The shutdown of general availability for the Windows 7 Beta will occur in 3 phases over the course of the next few weeks:
Starting January 27th, the Windows 7 page will be updated with a warning that time is running out on downloading the Windows 7 Beta and that we will be limiting downloads shortly. People will be encouraged to register and start the download of the Windows 7 Beta sooner rather than later. February 10th, new downloads of the Windows 7 Beta will no longer be available. People who have already started their Windows 7 Beta download and have not yet finished will still be able to finish their download and are encouraged to do so. February 12th, people will no longer be able to complete their download of the Windows 7 Beta. Anyone who hasn’t finished downloading the Windows 7 Beta will be unable to do so. Product keys for the Windows 7 Beta will continue to be available. So if you have the Windows 7 Beta but didn’t get a product key you will be able to do so even after February 12th. MSDN and TechNet Subscribers will continue to have access to the Windows 7 Beta bits throughout the Windows 7 Beta phase. The above dates do not apply to MSDN and TechNet Subscribers.

unable to download Windows 7 Beta today
even though I started on Feb 7th
I am now trying to download from a site with an higher speed internet connection
but am being advised downloads no longer
available. Thought I would be able to
complete a download
You would have to continue the download you started on the 7th. If you can't get that to work stay tuned to the blog as we'll be announcing a series of Windows 7 Installfests that will be starting later on in March.
