    What is with these horrible DL speeds?

    I am trying to install the open beta and I am getting less than 500kb downloads through either Torrent or HTTP. This has to be fixed. I have 1gb fiber and it is working just fine so internet is not the issue
    System Specs: i9 9900KS, EVGA 2080 TI FTW 3 Ultra OC'd, 32gb Gskill Trident Z Royal ram(for the bling), Samsung 970 PRO M.2 SSD,. Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog throttle and VKB GF3/MCG PRO stick, MFG Crosswind V2, HP REVERB.

    DCS modules: F-14, F-18, F-16, A-10, Nevada and PG

    Thanks for the PM,

    It maybe local or ISP issues.

      I can never use the torrent download, it seems broken. DL is <1MB/s and if i cancel Torrent DL and use HTTP instead i have 7-9MB/s, still very slow but better then torrent.

        I find that the default download mode (Torrent) runs at wildly varying download rates generally way below 5 Mbps. The upload bit rate if frequently higher than the download rate.

        When I switch to HTTP the download rate is far more steady, mostly above 50 Mbps which is about 5 MBps and I consider that satisfactory. My network access is rated at 400 Mbps, but I have never seen any download exceeding 150 Mbps.

            Most likely your ISP is throttling torrent traffic.

              @c0ff, I am noticing also low speed using torrent. Not sure if can be caused by ISP because downloading torrent through uTorrent app is not affected.

                I changed the default torrent settings in 2.9.17, what's your impression?
                Btw, you can feed the same torrents into uTorrent and check the speed.
                There's even an option in the updater to keep the torrents after downloading.

                  Update today:





                  I can do some more tests if you will tell me what to do. I started downloading that other torrents after switching to web update and finishing update.

                    That's not a fair comparison.
                    You can cancel the update download completely and feed torrent files from
                    _downloads\.torrents\
                    to your client of choice.

                    That will be fair.

                        Nah, the torrents are reused if there're no content changes.
                        Can you please send me the settings of your torrent client?
                        And if you happen to use qBittorrent, check it as well, please - it uses the same library.
