    350Mb/Sec that's mean your internet speed must be 4 Gbps above. Like me i've 30Mbps internet speed and the download speed can only reach 3.5Mb/Sec

    My friend was dowloading Farcry 4 on his new PC with 2 bytes per second, and Steam gave up and gave a download time estimate of one year. Yeah, some kind dev guy took Australian needs to heart and programmed it to say that.

    you could try running the steam library of all clients from a network share(samba, nfs, whatever). i run my entire linux box diskless from a NFS share so i can tell from first-hand experience that with the right network infrastructure a network share is good enough to just stream games off. just saves the whole caching step and also makes sure games only have to be downloaded one time.

    80% of the comments are complaints about how slow their download speeds are. Instead of the fact they can even afford to get a decent gaming PC..... Sure I have a beefy setup my self, but my God I would consider that lucky compared to all these kids that don't even have a computer/phone.....

    I get 40MBps download and 2MBps upload. 💪🏽😎 Use Cat6 or Cat7 ethernet cables. High capacity coaxial cable for cable internet. Get a really good router or cable modem. You'll get the full potential of your ISP. Oh and definitely change your DNS server to Googles DNS server for a more secure but fast network. 😎
