also my other original point was to the person i replyed to telling them there is no way that he has 3g speed and only downloading at 45kbps that's dileup speed. 3g is better then what i got and im downloading at 2mb.
For comparison, 4G is rated anywhere from 3Mbps to 12Mbps depending on your provider and location, and can hit 375KBps to 1.5MBps.

Moral of the story: You shouldn't even be attempting to play GW2 unless you have a suitable broadband connection.
2 weeks to download 8GB? How do you think the gameplay will be?
KBps (Kilobytes per second)
Kbps (Kilobits per second)
Mbps (Megabits per second, what most people are familiar with)
I said he was download at 45KBps (360 Kbps or 0.35 Mbps). That's just below 3G speeds (3G is listed as 400 Kbps), and if you have much experience in 3G (I manage a network of 2,500 machines that are all connected via 3G, and trust me, getting 360 Kbps is pretty dang good, I'd say I average closer to 200 Kbps across my network) you will know that the speeds he is getting aren't terrible. Either way, not everyone in the world has high speed internet available to them (I live in the US, as do my parents, but they live in rural Indiana, and their only option for Internet is DIAL-UP, Satellite, or 3G).
But the point I've tried to make is you can't expect Anet to sit still, you can't expect them not to update the game, and unfortunately you can't download these updates if you're on super slow internet nor really expect to stay under your monthly caps if you are on metered service. My recommendation, find someplace that has free WiFi and go download it from there.
