Well what have you tried? Without that, I can only offer some common fixes. 

 

1. With the Origin app opened, click on the word Origin in the top left and a dropdown menu will appear. Click application settings. Then scroll down to Download Restrictions and make sure you have no limit displayed. 

2. Reboot your router/modem and then reboot your pc. 

3. Add Origin to your exception list on windows and on your virus protector program. 

4. Right click Origin and run as administrator. 

 

Finally, here is a link about common issues with Origin: https://help.ea.com/en-us/help/origin/origin/my-game-downloaded-through-origin-but-will-not-install/

 

Let us know how it goes and what you tried.

Full solution here!
Go to task manager (CTRL-Shift-ESC)
Then Click Performance
Then click Open Resource Monitor
There should be a network/WiFi section
You can see any processes using your internet and shut them down if origin download speed is too low.
Also if the origin service is shut down, you can enable it there too.

If this doesnt work just close origin on task manager and restart your pc.

Can you both try the following steps please:

 

  • Disable all background programs on your system (including Steam). You can also do this with a clean boot
  • Temporarily disconnect all other devices that you don't need from your network
  • Use a wired connection
  • Make sure Origin is accepted in your anti-virus and firewall
  • You can also try using Safe Mode Downloading via Origin which is under Application Settings, Advanced
