How Long to Bring Product Up to Date?

I bought McAfee Internet Security 2010 today and installed it on my computer.  It has downloaded over 50 megabytes of updates so far to bring the product up to date.

Are we talking hundreds of megabytes, gigabytes or terabytes to bring the product up to date?

I ask because I have a 56k modem and cannot use the internet for anything right now because of the updating process.  It took an hour to download a 3 megabyte file.  It has taken me 10 minutes just to get to the point where I can click the button to submit this question.
