Hey guys, I'm wondering what kind of speed people are getting on the updater.

My stats have been roughly:
Upload speed: ~45k
Download speed: 30k~150k
Remote Connections: ~54
Local Connections: ~6

Download speeds for other downloads on my connection are typically around 700k.

I'm also on file 1/7. Is the time remaining for THIS file, or the whole thing?

Also, is this the last update?


PS: This is brutal.

I have 12 local connections, 0 remote connections, and about 15kb/sec download. 26 hours to finish...

I used utorrent the updater is terrible. There are few threads on this. I highly recommend going this route. I didn't even need to open any ports on my router.

It will still take time but will be much faster.

Don't torture your self.

I just now got my new comp settled in and decided to port over the entirety of my 'data' file from the last closed beta under the Square Enix beta folder from my old computer (over 4 gigs worth) via a USB drive. I'm now at about an hour and a half average to go.

At this moment:
Upload speed: ~130k
Download speed: 270k~350k
Remote Connections: ~31
Local Connections: ~7
