I just finished downloading the 15 GB video part of the download but that took me over 12 hours at 36kb/s. Right now I'm downloading 'Main Assets 1' and it's going at 45kb/s. Any ideas as to why? I'm not very knowledgeable with computers so you might have to dumb down your answers for me. Thanks!

If you are wireless, try connecting wired if you can. At that rate it will take you multiple days.

Those are dial up speeds. If you are dial up... then it's working as intended. If you're broadband (DSL, cable, etc.) something is seriously wrong. I've got a pretty slow connection and I was getting 300kps. Took about 12 hours to do it all.

Some tips.
- Make sure no one else is downloading stuff in your home.
- You can try disabling your antivirus software (and firewall if you have one) and see if that helps. (Remember to renable when you're done.)
- Reboot and retry.

I just bought the game and I am getting 70 kb/s.

Ridiculous, should be going at 1.5MB/s like everything else. Hell I would be happy with 500kb/s but come on BIOWARE / EA!

Just got the game yesterday. My dl speed has been as low as 1.5kb/sec. I started babysitting it and pause/unpauseing, and even relogging in and have been able to keep it around 2mb/sec though it's really irritating. I agree, this is pretty bad service. Still downloading as I couldn't watch it through the night and day and it was at 2.5 kb/sec when I got home.
