Downloading SO SLOW.
Installing left 4 dead 2 after seeing some issues come up, but the download started at a nice rate of 2mb/s and now at 90% it dropped to 10kb/s. I left it on all night and its still 10kb/s. Whats more annoying is the estimated time download, saying 1 minute left when it said that 2 hours ago -_-

It can't be the amount of players on because i downloaded Dota 2 with no problems and fast speed, and Gmod too.

Other games download at 2mb/s but not left 4 dead 2, why?? And when it comes to "Change your region for better speed" What region is better? Im in Australia(QLD) and other regions did not help at all.

Downloading Left 4 Dead 2 was slow for me too. The kb/s rate kept going up and down every second or two. It took me a full day and most of the night to download it completely. Also, every time my computer went to sleep mode, the downloading process pauses until I start the computer back up. It was confusing.

It probably doesn't help that the game is over 13GB's, but that's because it has L4D and L4D2 campaigns, and official DLC all included. And ISPs like to throttle speeds, too.
