Solved Why is Steam so slow? Tags: PC gaming Download Games Steam Video Games Last response: September 30, 2012 5:44 AM in Video Games Share Spartin503 September 30, 2012 4:33:11 AM I have about a 23.5 MB/sec download speed but when I download a game from Steam, max I can get for download is 2.5 MB/sec. Why is it slow? More about : steam slow Best solution bystander September 30, 2012 5:11:50 AM Most likely, you have a 23.5 megabit/sec download speed, and 2.5 megabyte download speed with steam. 2.5 * 8-bits = 20 megabit/sec.
