and consistency? I downloaded BF4 demo on Orgin and I got 1mb-1.5mb per second. I thought it was gonna take all day like with Steam which it can download from 50kbps to 2mbps but it's random as f*** and most of the time it's less than 500kbps

Origin downloads compressed files and then artificially inflates the displayed download speed beyond what it's ACTUALLY downloading at.

Unless you're actually monitoring it with external software. Don't go by what the Origin client shows. Steam and Origin both download at the exact speeds my internet allows. Yet, Steam shows the correct 1.5-1.6MB/s, while Origin inflates it to 1.8-2.2MB/s.

Nope.

Exact opposite for me. 9-10 MB/s on Steam, peak of like 2.5 with it usually staying around 1.5 on Origin for me.

Well the 5.5 gig download took me less than two hours on orgin. If it were on Steam it would be a minimum of 10 hours

I wouldn't know. I don't sit there and watch my download. I click install and go do something else.

Doesn't matter how you look at it, the full BF3 + expacs in under 45 minutes is damned fast.
