Download time increasing, why?

7 replies 240 views Edited Jul 4, 2013

At 97% on a download, been on it for over 10 minutes and the seconds have increased from 79 seconds to 88 seconds left. Why is this happening?

I've had success increasing download speeds by restarting the system.

PS3 right? Bad servers DL time fluctuating is just a spike or drop in dl rate. Time is just an estimate anyway based on average speed for a couple sec and can change. Complain when it goes from 3 minute to 10.

Bad servers? No.

Bad ISP? Probably.

I had this issue when i had DSL. When i switched to High Speed, never happened, and downloads always went fast. Probably you`re ISP throttling you.

I find that when I am downloading and it starts to slow down I pause the download for about 10sec or so then unpause. It seems to speed back up. Not sure if this would work for everyone but I have done this dozens of times and it has worked for me.
