Beta Client DL speedsFollow

#1 Jun 14 2013 at 8:14 AM Rating: Decent
How fast is the client DLing? I can't DL till I get home from work and I have maybe 4 hours before BF duty starts. Do I have time to DL the client and at least make a character or should I just pack it in and wait for next weekend?

Seems it depends on your ISP. I was going at a snails pace of .67 MB/sec, but others were reporting spikes of 2.5 MB a second, and the speed apparently picks up as you continue to download.

Holy crap, what ISP gives 2.5gb a sec, I want that!

I was getting speeds all over the board last night, from 10 MB/s to 100 KB/s. Took about 4 hours to download.

I don't remember the speed, but I finished the dl in about 30 - 40 minutes last night.

That would be rad (I know, RAD, I'm bringing it back) Hopefully, by the time I get to DL most people will have finished so the server won't be too busy.
