If any of you still are having the issue...

I had the same issue, and I recieved my PC around Xmas 2014 time. My Computer did not come with a WiFi Antenna built in, and when I bought one and got it working on my PC, the download took about 30mins.

In summary, CHECK if you have a WiFi antenna!!!

Hope this helps!!! 😀

Re: Sims 4 slow download

It could be a lot of things. It could be that your internet is slow.
Might be the Origin server is not handeling the masses of people trying to download it. 
It might even be a bug...

I'm currently on 80% on my macbook, only after waiting literally 24 hours and it being stuck at 74% - I gave up and downloaded it on my mum's new mac (i'm not sure which one but its one of the newer ones out) and it literally downloaded in 10 mins max and was ready to play. I use the same connection on my laptop, so i really don't know what the problem is. Its only started crawling again after i deleted some old programs and emptied my trash. My macbook is kinda old but it fits all the specs and requirements soooo idk. :/ Maybe on newer models it loads faster? My internet is fine and even though its probably doing 1% a couple of minutes, its kinda getting there! Fingers crossed lol.
