# 1 Slow DL rate.
01-11-2010, 07:21 PM
Downloaded Star Trek Downloader ST.0.20100108a.0. When I run the program and it starts downloading I noticed that it's downloading at a very low rate. It bounces between 40 and 80kbs. I had 2 friends of mine try to download it thinking it was just my pc or net. They get the same slow download speeds (all of us use Cox internet). I then tried to download a large patch file for a different mmo and it was downloading between 400-600kbs.

Any ideas on why I'm seeing suck slow DL rates with this game?

Yeah, there are a lot of people downloading the client at the moment. Even if you open ports, you'll still see slow download speeds.

The torrent cloud is a bit heavily loaded right now. As more people get further with the download, it should speed up. Just one of those joys of bittorrent.

I went through FilePlanet on the downloads page and got the international download link. Getting 1,000KB/sec.

Thanks for the info on fileplanet. Fileplanet dl is going to take 2 hours compared to 15 hours from the other one I was using.

I'm using UTorrent to DL, averaging about 100kbs-at times it gets down to around 30. gonna take all night-but that's what torrents are good for-dl and forget it! Hopefully by tomorrow I can at least install before everyone trys to log in and breaks the internets

I tried everal ways to download the client eventually settling on Gamershell 600kbps which isn't far off my limit took aprox 4 hours, the problems don't get any better when you install the client (no mean feat that) and find theres at least 5gig of patches to catch up on, It's rumoured some have had as much as 10 gig to patch.

The launcher patching is painfully slow after 10 hours I'm 365mb into a 5111mb patch.

Still chins up eh at least I'll get to play at some point before the beta passes (I hope)
