Don't know what there is that's even user involved, it's pretty straight forward. Log into the site, press quick match, sit there for 20 minutes until I just close the tab

I downloaded BF3 in 20 minutes lol.


You have 80MBps internet?

I'm skeptical that you have that, and even more skeptical that Origin can handle those speeds.


???

80MB/s * 60 seconds = 4800MB/minute
4800MB/minute / 1024 = 4.6875GB/minute
4.6875GB/minute * 20 minutes = 93.75GB in 20 minutes
93.75GB > 20GB and 30GB

Why would he need 80MB/s internet to d/l BF3 in 20 minutes???

Edit:
30GB * 1024 = 30720MB
30720MB / 20 minutes = 1536MB/minute
1536MB/minute / 60 seconds = 25.6MB/s
It would take a 25.6MB/s or 204.8Mb/s internet speed to d/l 30GB in 20 minutes.

20GB * 1024 = 20480MB
20480MB / 20 minutes = 1024MB/minute
1024MB/minute / 60 seconds = 17.06MB/s
It would take a 17.06MB/s or 136.53Mb/s internet speed to d/l 20GB in 20 minutes.

Edit2: Still ridiculous speeds, but nowhere near as ridiculous as 80MB/s.


Typo. Meant Mbps, though I figured it was obvious considering we were talking about Internet speeds.

It would have been obvious, except that 80Mb/s would not be fast enough to download 20GB or 30GB in 20 minutes. SOOOOO, I don't see why it would be obvious to ask if and doubt that he has an 80Mb/s download speed. In addition, lots of people on this board have an 80Mb/s or greater internet speed. Hell, I have an 84Mb/s internet speed. I don't see why you would doubt that someone had that.

Edit: Also, I don't see why you would be skeptical of Origin's ability to handle that speed. Steam and Origin both, regularly, max my download speed. It really isn't an incredibly unbelievable speed to have.

Edit2: So what exactly was your point in asking him if he had 80Mb/s internet speed? And why did you instantly doubt that he has it? And why do you doubt that Origin can handle that speed?

You have way too much time on your hands, but still managed to miss the subject of this topic. Google for more examples of slow downloads on Origin.
