Steam server are crazy slow today

I have a 50Mbps connection and I generally get upward of 8MBps download speeds on steam, but for some reason today I seem to be capping out at less than 1MBps.

Anyone else getting nutty slow downloads today? Seems rather unusual as steam is always super fast.



Side notes: Yes I understand the difference between a Megabyte and Megabit, and yes I have tested my internet speed and it is 64Mbps (download) 10Mbps (upload) as of 5:00 PM

So you have a 50Mbps connection yet you expect to get 64Mbps speeds. Seems legit. I have a 50Mbps connection and the max you can get is around 6.3mb/s down.

Especially in the southern hemisphere, where it's currently winter.
