OK, I have noticed this along time ago but never really bought it up, but download.com is so slow for the amount of advertisement they get they should be on kick ass servers wtf

speaking of slow, I bought assassin's creed on steam. Took about 13 hours to download...

DSL for ya I suppose. Whenever I download stuff from steam at my friend's house on his cable connection, it takes no time at all.

download.com sucks in terms of speed. Every time I go to download something it's really slow. I usually use file front or file hippo.

I prefer RapidShare but you need to find the links to the files which is a shame they dont list everything they have

Download.com is terribly, terribly slow regardless of your internet connection speed. It just sucks.
