I seem to be downloading from the Orcon and Telstraclear servers at the moment. Can't download from the Snap server for some reason?
It doesn't seem to be listed on the steam content server status page anymore either: http://store.steampowered.com/stats/content/

Anyone know what is happening with it?

Given that Steam Summer Sale is tipped to start end of next week, would be cool to know what the situation is!

Just a note: the Snap! server still appears for me in Steam settings, and I currently have it selected - but I haven't downloaded anything to confirm the Snap cache is still serving content (don't wanna waste the data yet if the answer is no).

EDIT: couldn't resist checking. Steam was getting its data from Orcon for all 5 game downloads I tested. Hopefully someone from Snap stops by this thread...

Steam is configured to use it. It's just not getting any data from it for whatever reason.

Hi All,

Sorry about the delay, but yes there is a known issue with our Steam server at the moment, technicians are working on this but there is no ETA as of yet. for the moment steam data from TCL and Orcon will not be counted towards your cap, so if you are downloading choose one of those servers. we also realise you will not get the same speeds as you would have off the Snap server, but we are working on it.

Thanks
