so why is this updated taking 3 hours to download? i set the wgc to download updates when they are available. and yet on update day the damn thing takes hours to download and install. so what's the point of "download updates in advance"?

its not my computer or my internet so what is wgc doing?

May I recommend turning your computer on the night before? (And not to play, updates aren’t downloaded while you play).

Maybe its 4 GB to DL...

Maybe your ISP network is congested...

The list of possibilities as to why are endless.

You didn't state you had fibre in the OP and the problem could be in between you and WG.

Unless your fiber optic connects your house directly with WG’s data center it is only good until you reach one of your ISP’s hub, from there through many hops until you reach the update servers your internet traffic has to compete with everyone else’s.

unless their client is in uzbekistan, and even if it is i'm closer than our colleagues who actually live in na, so that still doesnt work out

In WGC check your connection and down load settings...

Check for any other possible bottleneck to slow down your connection like firewall and modem settings...

Like many are telling you, the possibilities are endless.

It's not your internet, mine is crawling too. Everything BUT that download is screaming along just fine.

They don't use servers anymore, they use torrents now.

exactly this. i've got all manner of things running, downloading, etc, no problems. wg, 3h to download/install. they must have a very unique system for setting up their data transfer.

Have you checked the download setting in the WGC?  You can set the download to Unlimited.  Also the night before, I leave your computer on for the download and install.   Woke up this morning and it was all done.

Not taking me 3 hrs - so it is likely the connections to the server (they have a finite bandwidth - not unlimited) or it is congestion between.  But I can guarantee it is not taking everyone 3 hours to download.  200 meg down cable while I was downloading Aslain's modpack.  Could be the thread you got from then server was slow - no big deal to stop and try again.  Or a bunch of people were trying to download at roughly the same time.

Less than 10 minutes to download and install.

^^ this

Depending on where you are drawing the parts from could be the reason.

 

I am not on fiber and the DL and install took about an hour.

When the status bar shows "downloading" it's also installing. With my fiber and SSD drive it took under 30 minutes.
