Anyone having slow download with Steam?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
sorry! wrong forum.

I run speedtest and get 18M.
However downloading a game from Steam is taking forever!
(80KB!)

Anyone else having issues?
Anything I should try to change?
(I did go to preferences and checked the download speed and location and tried changing locations).

Thanks and Merry Christmas!!

it's because of the steam sales.

everyone is buying and downloading and the servers are going to be suffering for it. especially considering Dragon Age is on sale today and it's a big game, so the servers are going to be slow.

i've got about half my download speed...

it'll return to normal once the sales are done
