Hey @CG_PARZEVIL if you are having an issue with slow downloads then can you 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

Hey @EA_Darko , tried all of your suggestions, but nothing seems to be fixing the problem. Is there anything else I could try to improve the speed of downloading? I'm getting 1.5-2 mbps while having 22 mbps connection. 


Thanks in advance for your reply,
