here in norway where i live i have an internet speed of 1400KB/s and when i download from steam i get that speed. But when i download from the xplane installer it stays around 400KB/s, and the highest it has been is 1000KB/s. So why is the server so slow? And is there anything i can do about it, or you at laminar research?

Unfortunately, our CDN that provides the download only has one server for coverage in that area. You are probably downloading from servers that are quite a ways away.

We recommend only installing a small amount of scenery at a time to complete the download as quickly as possible.

Same here in Sydney Australia - download speed = 25 KILOBITS / sec [:o

I'm just loading the minimum scenery for Australia = 8Gb ...

That is going to take 85 hours = 3 1/2 days !

What can I do to make this a bit faster (we have a 30Mbps service here).
