Any way to speed up the download?

Im downloading rage through steam, is there anyway to increase to download rate?
All other games download and update at 1-2mb/s, but RAGE is going at 125kb/s...yeh...taking a life time.
Are steam's host servers just rubbish? Is there any way to increase the rate or connect to a different host server?
at 65% after 3 days!

You could try changing the server you are nearest to in steam settings. You have to restart steam for it to take effect though.

In the Steam client, click 'View menu->Settings', find the 'Downloads+Cloud' tab in the settings window and check if 'Download Region' is set close enough to your location.

Also, make sure the 'Internet Connection' setting is set correctly, while you're there.

It's set to UK-London, but guessing as that's the only UK server and im in the north of England maybe i should try some EU servers and see which gives me the best result?

EDIT: Just noticed there are several other UK servers. Thanks guys, hopefully will speed up.
