Has taken almost 15 minutes now to go from 48% to 96%. Just going up at 1 tenth of a megabyte at a time. Speedtest shows I have a 27Mbps download speed currently.

The secret to speedy patching is to not wait until the game comes back online at 9 PDT: because that's when everyone starts patching and it slows everyone down. I started patching at 8:30 PDT and was done in only a few minutes.

You can also register for playing on the Tribble test server and patch from there a day or two in advance. When the patch goes live on Holodeck, your game will look first in your Tribble directory and get the files from there if they're present.

Heh at least it is better than my home computer which can sit all night patching 10GB worth of stuff. I get frustrated, re-patch the next morning only to get the same problem again.

Then finally I get the idea to restart, re-verify and finally, it shot to 95%.

IMO this game is not worth 10GB a week

And assuming the patch system is somewhat... broken, then this is the first time I've ever seen an MMO consume this much data in a month. It's just patch and play forever in all my other MMOs. No patch 3 hours while waiting for map to load crap.

Ps.

It started downloading massive amounts of data weekly only after I did 'disable patch on demand'. Considering a fresh re-install.

After about 6 hours of waiting, I just deleted the install, gave it some thought and started to reinstall.
