ehhh... either you have a black hole installed in your computer, or you need to talk to your isp.. because I started dl'ing when it went on sale and I was getting 800 Mb/s avg. I let it run thru the night and it was done in the morning.

You might want to check and see if your download region is set correctly in the settings.

Took me a little over 6 hours to download (it does include all the patches) and I have AT&T DSL at 4Gbps. Steam seems to cap download speeds at about 650Mbps. So I think it's the Steam server capping out, not you.

Then again, DSL is very different from Broadband. Broadband is cable, so the more users on that same line, the slower your download speed will be. Too many neighbors watching Netflix can kill you.

maybe do a speedtest, let us know what you get, and then we can figure out if it's you or steam.

32K? That's like dial up! Guess you just have to sit it out. :o

If I'm paying for broadband and get speeds like that, I'd be askin for some money back from the local ISP

Yeah, bro, I'd be really snapped about that one. I know Broadband isn't cheap here in the U.S. I opted for DSL but it was a 2 year agreement for the deal I got.
