I guess Steam can't handle Bioshock preorders. :p

I think you need to get off dialup.

Ok, it just shot back up to 414kb or so.

I'm on a 5mb/second line BTW.

I think it typically maxes at the 6.x range if you're lucky.

A lot of people using dialup are in the country, so obviously can't get that...

Steam's DL speed has always been crap IMO, it would NEVER reach the 50KB/s DL rates i was used to on my old 512k DSL, and in order for me to get rates in the 800KB/s range on my 8mbps connection I have to be downloading like 6 things.

It came down at an average of 500kbps for me on a 7meg line, getting the Bioshock preload that is :D

1.5MB/sec here.

Either it has died off or you're unlucky. :D
