Glad to see valve improving steam even more, I have to admit, when TF2 got made free it was much slower (about half the normal speed I would get) for the first week. Glad to see such an update although I wish they would impliment some kind of automatic compression between server and client, that would lower the amount of data needed to download surely?
Don't get me wrong, I'm also seriously impressed as well, Its only at peak times it seems to slow a bit.
Steam 95% of the time manages to max out my line as well. I would love to see the servers all this is hosted on because they much be bloody high spec!
i have jitter, confirmed using M-Lab line quality tests and a enemy territory lagometer, which results in packet loss. Are the download managers, that these sites use, reliable?..i try not to download anything from the internet...only discs if possible
(btw some might find it intresting that the only line qualty test that reliably confirms jitter is m-lab, ookla\pingtest.net isn't reliable at all when testing for jitter or packetloss, its a weak test that i'm sure comcast loves)
i'm the guest who posted above...just wanted to say i haven't really tested that much with ookla\pingtest.net concerning packet loss so i'd like to retract the statement relating to packet loss(but not jitter).
