Steam running terribly

I bought Civ. 5 on Steam sale, started downloading 2½ hours ago, and it has only downloaded 400Mb :pfff:

I have a 20/2 Mbit connection and it's running without problems.

Am I the only one experiencing problems with Steam today?

  1. This topic has been moved from the section Applications to section Video Games by Area51reopened
  2. Try restarting Steam. It happened with me a few times. I'd put an 8 gb file for download at night and when I check back 9 hours later, it showed only 4gb downloaded. I have a 4mb connection so obviously, that was bs!! I exited Steam and restarted it after about 30 seconds and the file showed as completed!

    Hope the same works for you too!
  3. Steams servers tend to get hammered during the sales.
    Give it a few days and you'll get far better download speeds.
  4. ^ This. Steam is currently having massive sales, and the amount of data their servers currently has to displace is immense. They're struggling to keep up, but just give it time for people's monies to run out and it should get better.

    Agreed. This is probably the cause of your problem OP

    lol
  6. Try changing your location, if the UK servers are slow I set my location to Paris and get a much higher speed.
