they added that a few updates ago.

very useful because steam will use 100% of your connection speed.


whats a good download limit?


What's your internet speed?

yea start with your rated speed from your ISP and go from there.

20Mb I'd say go with 1MB leaving like 1.5ish for everything else
30Mb I'd say go with 2MB leaving like 1.75ish for everything else

well yea its going to be slower because you're reserving bandwith for web browsing.

you either deal with steam being slower or you deal with it hogging your bandwith.

You can try capping it at 2 and see how that goes, should still give you enough bandwith for web browsing.

10MB is more bandwith than you have.

MB =/= Mb

If it works for you tho then thats great, just saying setting it at 10MB should use all of your bandwith the same as if there was no limit.
