Wow, never seen Steam so slow as tonight. I'm downloading an update to 3DMark that is 500MB and it's taking me 30 minutes!

Usually, with my Gigabit Ethernet I can download that amount in a minute or so. Network tests confirm I'm getting full speed.

Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this?

I feel bad that no one ever responded to this. But given the date of your post, my guess is it was during a Christmas sale of some sort and a lot of people were downloading, which might explain the server load.

LOL, I had forgotten about this post!

Thankfully, it seems to be an isolated incident as it never happened again, but it certainly was frustrating at the time.

At any rate, I appreciate you taking the time to reply!
