For the love of Pete....
High speed bandwidths over 1Mbit are so common now for the end user.
Sometimes takes several minutes just to get version information, then have to check files...only to get dropped from the rotation and have to start all over again.
When I DO get in... downloads only averaging about 64kbps, when they are moving. Eventually I get the network problem message and have to start over again.
It's not an ISP issue. I can run uploads/downloads all day without problems--even unencrypted plain vanilla FTP's, not torrents. And don't even try with the ps2 limitations mess. I'm talking about downloading the update, not playing the game. If nothing else, for the first few hours after a patch, lift the connections limits or something so that the files get out there faster.
