Depends on the level of compression.

Origin almost has 2x the speed. Its your connection TC, Origin is already proven to be the better service, it just has less games than steam.


It's already been proven that Origin artificially inflates speed by downloading the compressed file but showing the download speed as if it wasn't compressed essentially doubling what your speed appears to be.


And what's wrong with that? It's functionally the same as you having faster internet.

The Steam of version of Medal of Honor is almost 8GB as well lol, and I still get 7mb/s on Steam.

I have had no issues downloading using Origin... must be something on your end.

I got origin for a couple free games, but it's a cow and doesn't like to play nice. The storefront is always slow and buggy, too. Like Steam at peak hours.
How does a big company like EA manage to have such ****ty servers?

Because Valve is focused on PC's( at least until recently). EA has to deal with console's also so I guess they are not properly allocating their resoruces
