I like how it takes 3 hours to download and install a 700 MB system update.

You have slow internet.


Speedtest of my slow Internet:

So slow! It's totally my connection's fault!

...

*goes back to downloading 50 GB Blu-ray in 30 minutes from a provider with competent bandwidth*

160 Mbps = 20 MB/sec. 700 MB / 20 MB = 35. It should have taken me 35 seconds to download the 700 MB Wii U 3.0 update, not 3 hours. My connection's download speed is as fast as the Wii U's optical drive's read speed.

For the record, Nintendo isn't the only one that fails to saturate my connection, but they sure do fail the hardest. Steam's downloads can be pretty garbage too sometimes, particularly during Steam sales.

Just out of curiosity - What kind of connection are you using to your modem or router?

On the PlayStation 3, I tend to use an Ethernet cable or I'm limited to "g" wireless. I'm able to max out my connection.

Just wondering if Nintendo is being cheap with their servers or people aren't optimizing their connections.


I'm using the USB to ethernet adapter.

Wireless and I don't get along.


Never use those flash based speed tests. They lie.

Speedtest.net is quite accurate.

Just try testmy.net and read what they say and then do a side by side comparison.

my tests were almost exactly the same... testmy had .24 mb/s more DL speed then Speedtest and .05 more UP.
