Steam download issues



  • I have had an issue with steam where it just does not download at my full speed all the time.

    when steam is using full speed it is at around 35MB/s but that is only for like the first 10 seconds of the download and after that it just dips to anywhere between 1MB/s to like 15MB/s. And when i am downloading it keeps stopping and starting.

    If i pause the download and start it again it goes to 35MB/s and then dips like when i start the download. This is very annoying when downloading big games. I have tried to fix it countless times but no luck

    The things i've done try to fix it:

    -Tried to change to heeps of diffrent servers

    -cleared the download cache

    And the worst part about this is that something like epic games launcher or other programs are always at full speed. This only happens to steam and no other program

    If you can help please reply! THANK YOU



  • If you switch steam servers, that might not be something on steam's side, but more on your ISP's side.

    When you start downloading huge payloads it limits you.

    So I would try this. Try a speedtest.net when you are not downloading, and one when you are downloading and getting slow speeds. If its your ISP, you should see a difference.

    That or try a download with another service. If a download on the Epic Game Store seems to do the same thing, then it would also point to your ISP.

    Then, with that in hand, have a talk with your ISP as to why your downloads are throttled like that.
