Why are my downloads going so slow?

It is possible the network your connecting from could be limiting your bandwidth or could be very busy at the time you are trying
to connect. There are many reasons why your downloads could be going slower than they usually do. When connecting to our
servers your data will have to travel through many networks to get here. If any network in the chain is having problems then your
connection speeds will be affected. Users outside of the United States are affected by this more than anyone.

There are websites that let you check general network latency at major points around the country. You can check here to
see there are any big problems going on that may be affecting your transfer.

For these charts to be helpful you will need to know who your Internet Service Provider is and which network provider they use for
their connection to the internet. Your systems administrators can usually provide you with this information.
