Slow Downloading

3 replies 38 views Edited Jul 20, 2011

Some of my downloads have been going slow for over a week now. Some downloads go at a normal speed, but then I could try something else just a minute later and it goes slow again. The Estimated Time Remaining just keeps going up and the MB downloaded just stalls completely for a while.

Is there any explanation why some downloads seem to go at a normal speed while others go slow and stall at random times? I've never had this happen before. The only thing I can think of that's different now is that I used the most bandwidth this month that I've ever used, and my ISP (Bell) has a bandwidth limit. Could that somehow be slowing me down? I haven't gone OVER the limit, but I was close. Though even then, I don't know how it would only affect SOME downloads and not others.

the same happened with my bro. maybe because alot of ppl r downloading the same thing so it becomes slow. so either u download it with the slow speed or 2 w8 until the servers become uncrowded.

It's been happening at all times of the day, for an extended period now. So I'm not sure if the problem was with the servers.

My downloads are finally working normal again now though. My bandwidth with my ISP reset today, and I also tried something that I read on another site that's supposed to help connection speeds. I don't know which of the two actually did it, but I'm just glad I can download bigger games again.

Thanks for responding.
