Origin keeps pausing my download.

A 1 hour Sims 3 download turns into a 6 hour "pause and redownload" session.

Consider yourself lucky then.

All the Origin horror stories I keep hearing involve a 3 hour download turning into a 2 hour download and OOPS! We need to start over... a 2 hour download and OOPS! We need to start over.... a 2.5 hour dow... nope.. Starting over again...

For me, what was supposed to be a six hour download of BF3 has turned into four days of having to babysit the client in order keep the download going.

I kind of gave up downloading Dead Space 3 in Origin for a bit. For the past days, I had your problem, plus an additional one. What happened was, I already downloaded at least 5GB before it paused, then when I resumed it, it suddenly rolled back to 600mb. It happened more than once.

That wouldn't be much of a problem if I have faster internet, but I don't. I have a download speed of 250-300kbps. You're actually lucky that you even manage to finish downloading your game.

When it pauses it seems to show a false number, I was like 15% and it paused and showed i had downloaded 58% of Bf3, Which was wrong.

This is what's happening to me. Is TS3 any different on Steam? I never have these problems on there so I might just delete Origin altogether and get it on Steam.
