Are the folk over there completely nuts to have such minuscule bandwidth for downloading game data?
I've looked over the official forums and there are a multitude of other people with exactly the same problem. I have 60mbps interwebs, downloading games from steam at around 7 mb/s yet downloading the however many gigs for a fresh install of SWTOR, i'm downloading constantly at <200kb/s...
There are no suggested solutions so the only reason I can see is, like i said, bioware just didn't bother installed a decent infrastructure to allow people to download their game at normal speeds.
downloading the 9bg game plus all the extra crap whatever they may be and the non stop crashing to desktop and random errors and freezes are a godamn pain but other than nto playing theres nothing i can do about it as ea dont care about f2p players so support doesnt work
I considered playing again in Dec when ppl were coming back for F2P and the Cartel Coins, I was pulling an easy 5-6Mb the whole time. I had the entire game downloaded within 6 hrs. Id have to say its something either on your end or between you and them.
P.S. I never launched the game and deleted it again recently, just in case your wondering =)
