Just you wait~
Once steam finishes downloading the game, and you launch the client and then log in.
You get to look foward to another 9gb download :D

Best thing I can suggest is just setting it to download and find something else to do or leave it whilst you sleep.
I don't get speeds much better than that most of the time either.
If you should be getting faster maybe its your ISP or something.

I'm in South Africa, I did the Steam Pre-load Game Down Load of 14 GB took around 8...9 Hrs. Then the game released and Steam had a 4 GB update. That took 5 hrs (our internet speeds over weekends is alot faster than during the week).

The I got the game launcher to start playing and had to download an ADDITIONAL 12 GIG That downloaded from 10:30am Tuesday the 11th of January until 17:45 Wednesday the 12 of January.

My husband started his 12 GIG Download at 18:00 Wednesday and is now (7am) on 3 GIG....

But all frustration was forgotten when I got to press that play button...

Why do they do this. I had a 13 GB download got to launch and now another 2.5 GB download. They caould have just added them together and they would have been done overnight. It just shows that no one gives a ♥♥♥♥ about customers anymore.

Get more internets. It took me about an hour to preload it before the launch and I was hitting 2MBps (big B not little)and the lowest I hit was 1.6MBps. Steam can certainly provide the throughput.

The game is almost 20GB? Something like that I think? You are downloading at 200KBps, that would take over 24 hours, more like 29 hours if you can maintain that download speed and not be interrupted. That connection is the 20 dollar lite package. Upgrade.
