Does anyone know how the Steam workshop CDN works?
I use the Miami Steam server because I'm in Florida, and, with games I get a good 3.5MB/s download speed, however, with the Steam workshop items I get barely 700KB/s. Does anyone know the reasoning for this? Is it because they don't distribute content globally for user based items? Or, is it because they're smaller objects (~100MB vs ~8GB)? Or 'because Valve'?
(I did google first, all I see is a lot of people asking the same thing with no answers.)
