I have done everything and nothing works. It takes steam forever to start up with updating and verifying when it does come up it takes a week to install a game, keeps pausing. I have run a speed test and get 128mbps download and 29.5 upload. I've never had problems but it started the last 2 weeks.I've totally uninstalled steam and had to reinstall games. Didn't work. So I kept my steam exe, steam apps, and user data folder and reinstalled steam , closed out everything, all programs, antivirus and same problems. So I gave up on steam and tried to play games on Uplay. Same problem. What can I do?
Are you sure it's your download and not your installation? You'll notice that a Steam download has two activities: network activity and disk activity. Sometimes, if your disk is slow or otherwise full, it can take forever to "download" something, but in reality everything's already downloaded, it just needs to be installed.
