    My internet is up to 40 megabits per sec and on speed tests I'm getting 35ish. To download a 200 megabyte file should take 41 seconds........... but it takes me 75 seconds meaning it's only downloading at a speed of about 22 megabits per second. So not confusing megabits and megabytes, do I have a problem?

    Theoretical download speeds you only reach when the sending party can provide it.

    What results do you get on speedtest sites or on Steam for example?
