Hi Team.

 

 

 

So for the last week I have noticed my steam downloads have slowed down to like 40mbps down from 200mbps

 

I have done a speedtest and I am getting my full 200mbps so it just seems to be steam. I have uninstalled steam and I am still having the same issue.

 

I have posted a screenshot of my steam download.

The answer to any throttling on almost any ISP is no. Steam can just be terrible and it also depends on what game you're grabbing.

No, there's no throttling. More likely something outside the network changed - maybe you're using a different Steam server, maybe the path to the server changed, maybe it's really busy. Got an IP address that you're downloading from?

Get sysinternals TCPview. But I have to agree with the others here, it's not throttling.

We need a Peterreader Autoresponse of "NO, IT'S ALMOST CERTAINLY NOT THROTTLING" whenever the T word is in a thread subject.

I know how to change the server for downloads. It's currently set to New Zealand. Not sure what server I should try though. I am in Auckland.

Checking my steam, vodafone is preforming on par as per normal.

 

 

 

 

Load balanced connection is pegging over both spark and Vodafone equally.

After computing the question for quite some time since my master doesn't give me quite as much CPU time as I once had I can conclude your ISP is not throttling you.

Brilliant, so let's close the thread :-)

 

(controversial suggestion here after a declarative answer to a FAQ is to close the thread)

I'm set to Australia, but I have moved them around from time to time as my performance has dropped (actually I am set to NZ since I reinstalled my OS and Software after a hardware upgrade prior to xmas, and getting line speeds.

I've just tested it but Australia NSW should give you some alright speeds. Not quite as good as when the Steam caches in NZ are working as expected however.
