Slow download speed?

Post by crazyewok123 » Sat Oct 08, 2011 6:18 pm

Im trying to download birth of the federation ISO and i'm getting 12.5 kb /sec download speed that cuts out after a hour or two. It not a problem my end as other downlaod sites are work perfectly. So is there anything I'm doing wrong on this site? Or is the download speed normal? :?

must be something on your end. I just started downloading main multi 1.02 and get a whooping 700KB/s. Normally you get ~200/300 KB/s here on AFC.

I suggest using a download-manager. Also it's weekend, means traffic in the internet is on its peaks.

If I were you I'd try using some ping-plotter and find out if I got a packet-loss somewhere.

No, its the internet in general I think. I'm experiencing slowness of every web site. Weird stuff. I could be wrong.

This always happens on weekends Tethys. It's just a way of us IT-guys to say, that you should worship us and that our jobs are needed and important ;)
