Well, im trying to downloading a couple of games; Namely CS: source and HL: Deathmatch.

The speeds are less than sh*t. The max speed im getting is 100kb.

usually i get around 700-800.
Has anyone noticed the speeds tonight? or is it just me?

Just to give you a little background, i'm using SlingShot (and everythings fine for Web surfing etc.)

Depends if SS have an Akami cache they use  or theyre just grabbing Steam data from whereever its available....  when I was on Xnet, the speeds were up and down like a yoyo.

True.

Things are better now, i'm getting about 800kb/s steady downstream now, so its okay.

Im not sure about the cache thing.. They could very well have one for all i know.

oh well, everythings going good again. Just thought i'd ask.
Thanks for your reply :)
