    check your firewall I download from origin at 11meg so you must have something blocking or interfering with it.

    Aside from the Origin hate, they do have good download speeds. As Belimawr said you probably have something interfering, or maybe someone else in your household happened to be downloading?

    I don't know, I noticed the same thing a couple nights ago when I bought Crysis 3. I was at 40 kbs and Ive got 50MB DLS. Theyre having a 50-70% off sale right now so it may just be tons of traffic. I hope so because if EA makes a shit ton of money off PC games, maybe they'll start paying us a little more attention.

    Maybe your ISP is throttling origin.
