Is anyone else having issues getting steam to update its games? For me it started yesterday where it download 100kb and then stops, waits 20 seconds and then tries again before it stop and tries again. 

 

I left it running for 8 hours and it got no where and queued them. I've cleared my download cache, tired another download server, repaired the steam directory and even reinstalled the client and I still have the problem, I'm beginning to think its a problem at their end.
