I am using this service for the first time and have bought 10 Skycredits to test it out.
What i find strange is that it seems that the Steam downloads are kind of limited or throttled in speed.
I am using a SkyPC in Frankfurt and its downloading its content from the Steam Cdn in Frankfurt.
When i start a download the first 5GB of the download are going 600-700 Mbps, but if it surpassed 5GB the download seems to get limited to 4 Mbps, and stays that way, no matter if you try a later time or choose an other steam cdn.
I am download killingfloor 2 at the moment and its 15 GB, i wasted 1.50 EUR on skycredits so far only to still download the game it seems that my first 5 skycredits already are gone, before the game is completed with downloading.
This is getting too expensive this way, if i need to pay 3 Euros to download a game on steam. because the speed it getting throttled at 4 Mbps.
If download for a test the game home, from the same steam Cdn and time i get 100 Mbps download speed (my max ISP speed) so it seems not a limitation on Steams end in my case.
Does everybody else have this kind of issue, is my sky pc borked? or was the London location a better choice to house my SkyPC.
PS: the fast.com speedtest is giving 1Gbps on the SkyPC. that why i am suspecting network limiting and not capacity problems.
