I don't know if the servers are back to normal or not but download speeds are a ton better today than they were yesterday.

I am currently using Washington D.C.'s Content server..

Can anyone recommend any other decent content servers? Thanks..

All the stats for how much bandwidth the content servers are using is available here:

Looks like it's getting as much use now as during the sale, so who knows what's going on.

Incidentally, what's that Steam skin? Looks rather nice!

Nice link, Epsilon, I'd forgotten about that :)

OP, don't be afraid to choose a download region on the other side of the world. You don't have to pick one near to you for fear of slowdown. Often, if you pick one on the other hemisphere to you, you can happily get good speeds while most of them are asleep.

Thank you for the list, however, I already have it bookmarked and know how to use it. The problem here is that if I choose a server in Africa I get abysmal speeds even though it's half empty most of the time, I don't think capacity has anything to do with it, since a server in the Ukraine easily has more speed than the servers in Africa, which makes no sense to me since I live on the east coast.

Understand the balance between infrastructure, users, and congestion.
