Extremely slow download speed on update.

I have a 7Mb connection so generally i download at around 500-700KB/s i started the update when i went to sleep of 3 GB usually will take 2-3 hours to download instead its saying it'll take 10-15 hours it's downloading at 0.03-0.08MB/s so 30KB/s-80KB/s when i woke up it was only at 50% so i restarted the launcher to see if that would help it cleared all progress so far and is back to 1%. 

 

Anyone have any idea how to speed this up? I've already checked my connection and it's not that.

My download speed spikes up towards 10-30mbs on steam, only getting 1.5mbs, but for some odd reason it was at .50 and it is creeping up slowly, basicaly it went from .050 then to 1mb then to 1.5mbs now its apporaching towards 2mbs, kind of wierd, dont know what is causing it.

Just hit the 2mb/s mark and its still increasing at a snails pace.

Download speed stopped at 2.20mb/s and it will not progress any further.

anyone?

The launcher is terrible, you need to monitor speeds using your Resource Monitor or something like Netlimiter. I'm not getting what I can get with other games and Steam as well but this patch I'm getting a faster speed boost. Getting 900KB/s up to about 1.2MB/s, but it's a little before 6AM PST here. In general the day time speeds are pathetic, only the overnight speeds, 1AM - about 8AM PST, will I see a surge.

On another thread I recently even pestered my ISP and they told me they do no speed throttling.

Current IP is 23.61.195.66, which from what I can tell is San Jose CA. There is nothing can do about it. Blame Akamai Technologies, which BDO is using in NA. They or their contract with Daum sucks balls.

I am experiencing EXTREMLY slow download speeds. I am physically only 20 miles from San Jose, Ca. and if what you say is true about the server being in Silicon Valley then I can not understand why the download is so slow.  Would really like to hear an explanation as to why its gonna take me 28 hours to download the game that is on a server 30 minutes from me.
