    Had the same thing last night and this morning. Changed it to Singapore and I'm getting max speeds again. Something funny with the AU servers I guess.

    I was having the same issue, struggling to even get 500Kb/s speeds. I was playing around with my LanCache setup earlier today and I thought that I must have broken something. But now I've switched my Steam region to Singapore and things are downloading at full speed again.

    Just downloading Squadrons and was getting 100kb/s for hours, then read this.

    Now getting 12.9MB/s out of Singapore!

    Thanks!
