WoW was just as bad for everything during it's beta cycle too. Be patient, it's beta, there are plenty of download options, and things will get better. Don't fret it.

Check your firewall rules or stop leeching. Plenty of people have downloaded it quickly through the launcher or the torrent.

I used the downloader for all of closed beta, and only when I was using my 3G broadband card would I get slow download times. I did a complete install in a little over two hours, while everybody else was complaining about it taking days to just patch.

I've not run into any issues with the downloads, there are no corrupt files. Honestly if you are getting download lag its your internet connection.

Torrent downloads are sensitive to having proper ports open, because if you don't, you can't connect to peers correctly.

File Planet is getting some corrupt files according to Coderanger, a Cryptic employee. But files should be clean from Cryptic.

I tried getting the files from Fileplanet and kept getting weird errors...after trying Cryptic it downloaded in just a few hours and worked fine. I was getting in the area of 650 KB/s

Sorry to hear about your issues man. I tried downloading it from FilePlanet and I was getting about 20 KBps which would've taken several days to get.

So I used uTorrent and downloaded it getting a steady 200 KBps. I turned off any internal or external firewalls and I had it in 11 hours, and it installed perfectly.
