  1. Have you tried a speed test to see if your actually getting the speeds you subscribed too? Also is this a torrent download or from a website?
  2. no. Also on speed test its 15.30 downloadspeed and 5.30 uploadspeed
  3. Alright that all sounds right. Your download speeds can range when downloading from websites because each website has different bandwidth, and set rates. These rates can vary especially if you are a free user vs a paid user trying to download this file. If you are downloading a torrent, your rates will depend on the uploaders connection.

  4. The downloads are from steam
  5. It has been forever since I have been on steam, but I believe that you can state your connection speed under preferences. Change it to cable, and maybe it will speed up. I would verify, but I am currently at work. It is something to try though. :-)
  6. Its at cable/fiber 10 Mbps
