I also suffer from this horrible download speed. I've got a 120Mbit connection and through steam I can download 20gb games within 30min. My SWTOR download however has now been running for 24hrs and I'm nowhere near done. When I right-click my SWTOR folder it's total-size is not even 13gb.

I'm pretty sure it's not just server related. My download starts with like 2000kbps and almost instantly drops down to 500kbps, then slowing down to anywhere between 50 and 200kbps. However, the 'total downloaded' part on the left doesn't increase at all during the first 15-30seconds. (probably verifying existing files?)
Also, when I quit the launcher, it doesn't even properly closes till after about 20 seconds it throws an exception. Also, while it's downloading, I constantly see a message pop up that a download may have stalled as there were no packets receive for 90 seconds. However, when this message appears, download speed indication tells me it's about 200kbps at all times.

I'm running Windows 8 Pro x64 (fresh install). (didn't have this issue about 6 months ago during my last fresh windows install (same OS, but release-preview)

If anybody has found the cause and/or a possible work-around, please let me know, coz I wanna play. Not watch the launcher do little to nothing to make it happen.
