steam download problems

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
IS anyone else having problems downloading games from Steam? im downloading TF2 and it has averaged between 10-15 KB/s. Peaked at 200KB for around a min then dropped to 80 and now back to 25kb. This is on a 20/5MB connection. I usually get around 800kb-1.5mb/s when downloading. I know people are downloading there x-mas presents right now but this is Crazy SLOW. Nothing else downloading at all on my internet. Thanks.

Downloads seem to sometimes go faster for me if I try "launching" the game before it's finished. It will bring up the update window before you play, and sometimes that takes priority.

Also, make sure your location settings are correct so it goes to the best content server. Even if they are, maybe try another one that's somewhere close.

as above, try changing servers.

i was having the same issue yesterday and tried changing server, and that worked. (Phoenix worked well for me too )

you can also try deleting the clientregistry.blob file, restarting steam, or restarting your PC.

You pay for 20mb down and avg 800-1500? If I were you I'd call my ISP and complain. I pay for 8mb down and avg 1000-1500kb for downloads.

Just because you pay or 20mb down doesnt meant that is what you will get....Remember you can only download as fast as the other client can upload...

It's just because of the sale, I remember before they started I could DL games at around 1.8MB/s

Still have 10GB left for DAO
