I have had the same exact internet for the past 4 years.

I 've been using the same modem for the past 4 years.

It's been working just fine for the past 4 years up until the last month. It used to take me 20 minutes to download 1 GB of DLC. Now it literally takes 24 hours.

Hell, it even takes 10 minutes to download these little 4 or 5 MB updates for games...

I started downloading Dead Rising 2 about 4 days ago and it's ONLY 32%!!!!

I've cleared my system cache. I've deleted a bunch of unwanted DLC and demos... But nothing seems to be working...

Any ideas?

Is your PC internet working properly? If so then there is some problem on Microsoft's end. I'd suggest calling them on phone.

Is throttling an issue with your ISP?

Well, if it's a wireless adaptor you'll probably need to get a new one because those things are garbage (especially the original single antenna model). If it's not wireless than I have no idea. Sorry.

As good as it's always been.

I don't lag when playing online and when I host games people tell me that they don't lag and that I'm a good host.

It's just supremely extremely subliminally excruciatingly slow whenever I try to download DLC.

Do you know how depressing it is to see new DLC out (Dishonored Briggsmore Witches) only to say to yourself...

"YAY! I can't wait to play this game!"

........ In four days.....
