Default Desktop download is seriously slow

I'm currently downloading Carte Blanche at a blistering 79KB/s. I'm using a capped account, and it's not throttled or shaped, even torrents run at 420KB/s or more.

Thanks for letting me know. I've asked the product owner to have a look at what's going on.

Odd. Our network operations guys are convinced there's nothing wrong with our delivery systems or network.

What ISP are you on?

I use Afrihost and have never found download speed issues with them.

Internet browser downloads are fast as well as another program i use to download lectures. Check screenshot. Downloading 1 item gets speeds up to almost 500kb/s and downloading 3 items get combined speeds over 350kb/s (and goes higher).
