Download effect (Steam vs Origin)

So I enjoy watching streams on twitch and recently got into Origin cause of the humble bundle. So I download battlefield 3 and was able to watch lag free streaming of Starcraft 2. When I use Steam the twitch stream lags. So what is Origin doing differently than Steam?

Origin never used my full bandwidth to download, seems it doesn't for a lot of others either. I only ever got 3/4 or so of the speed on Origin that I did on Steam. Perhaps it's the same for you.

Thanks. I found a way to limit the download on Steam.
