Default Downloads are very slow

I am not sure what the problem is, but it seems like my downloads are extremely slow. I do have a fast internet connection. I have cleaned out cookies, restarted computer, tried different browsers and even different internet service providers. Right now the best I am getting is 104 kb/sec. That is way better than I was getting.....6.1 kb/sec and that was on my fast internet connection. Everywhere else is great, but here.

Every now and then I will get a good speed, but not usually.
I don't know what else to do.
Thanks.
Janie

Mine also, but I think it is because of the Birthday Bash. So many wonderful kits and prizes being downloaded, including all the freebie kits in the Designer challenge. I just start my download and then go on to something else while it downloads.

I didn't even think of all the stuff going on

That is what I have been doing also, doing other things. Right now downloading a 17.2 MB file, the download speed if 9.8 KB/sec. with 27 minutes remaining.
Patience isn't my middle name-haha.

Yeah, I know, me too, but I'd rather do the wait and be able to get all the wonderful freebie stuff that is available during the birthday month!!

I know, they do give you a nice timeline. Sometimes when I have a lot of other stuff to download, I hold off on the purchases unless I need a layout right away. I'm having a ball downloading all those wonderful free kits from the Designer challenge! Those gals are awesome!!

I agree - the extra time we have to download is much appreciated

I purchased a couple of kits and had a hard time downloading them too. The time got better a bit later in the evening.

Thanks, I have been trying at different times to see if it was any better and yes, later in the evening I was up to my regular download speed.

I think it's us. We are looking at some solutions, but they may take some time to implement.

I have noticed that my mornings (I'm in Europe) the speed is much faster. If at all possible, try setting downloads for late at night?

Thank you, I try to download at night as it does seem to be faster.
I really love this site and no matter what, will continue to buy
