Man that download is slooooow

Postby David L » Wed Dec 04, 2013 7:50 pm

Grabbed the 7.5 update earlier, two different downloads available. Started with the smallest one, the actual Cubase download and man, i have download speeds that vary between 30 and 70 kBps, started downloading the HSSE 2 update and that was done within an hour and a half, and that thing is more than twice the size.. I'm having timeouts all the time and have had to restart the download as the timer ran out..
Anyone else experiencing this? Will it smooth out?

Yes, I don't get why Steinberg (a big company) can't simply rent some cloud servers for the few days after a big release. :cry:

I mean, Windows Azure is not actually really expensive...

This comes up every single release.

And, no, Azure isn't expensive for a single person. But remember that cloud services typically charge based on usage. If you think it wouldn't be expensive when everyone is trying to download the latest release then maybe, as an exercise, you should find out how expensive it really would be. ;)

My downloads were actually pretty good.
But yeah, the second one did take over an hour - maybe even two, but no glitches or interruptions.
