    That's not an issue with the servers, it's your wifi.

    If you are running it at 2 GHz, try enabling 5 GHz to allow faster download rates so it doesn't cap at 45 mbit/s.

    Even connecting an ethernet cable (and maybe using a faster vpn route ) can help quite a bit.

    Lol, i dont use wifi for pc, its a direct cat5e cable so your theory is not valid, and again is MB/S not mbit/s, I do test speeds and shows 930 megabites speeds its clearly Anet download server caped to 45mb/s, im on a gigabyte fiber.

    Good on you for using a wired connection then, and yeah mbit/s vs mb/s doesn't matter since they convert into eachother, also your original post lacked the information.

    It seems very likely you are capping out on their end then given you don't have a cheap/faulty cable or others devices/users on the same network, however this still means you can download the game with it's 2 expansions and plethora of updates in just about 18 and a half minutes - which I guess can be quite a while if you want to play but if anet needs to restrict their data flow to protect their servers I kinda get that too.
