Update download speed stuck at 100-300 KB/s

Insane. I have a 1gbps internet connection and download games at 80 - 100 megaBYTES a second on Steam and yet here I am unable to download a MW2 patch at anything greater than 400kbps here in Australia. Thanks Blizzard, should’ve bought the game on steam.


Same as everyone above. Just ran a speed test, 475 MB/s dl and 225 MB/s up. This launcher is doodoo. Regret not buying this on steam.


Same story here.
389mbps down, 200+ mbps up on my PC. Non-Bnet games download fine.

It’s literally just Battle.net displaying it’s superior Blizzard level of quality.

I’m just going to wait for 2 weeks like I did with OW2 and save myself some frustration.
Good luck!

WHAT THE F*** IS THIS??? I wan’t my money back this is out rageous how are you gonna put out a fing 50-60 gb update for people that have already downloaded the whole game and bought it and have a shy 16 gb update for people playing for free. Make it make sense… Plus why is this s** stuck at KBps??? You guys EARNED OVER A BILLION DOLLARS within TWO FING WEEKS but can’t afford proper fing servers??? Are you guys located in bangladesh or something for this to occur??? You’re a billion dollar company with servers that are worse than indian scammers… FFS!!!


Same problem. Stuck at 100-400 kb/s. Launcher is updated/restarted. Everything else I run is fine with 200/100 mb/s connection.

None of that will help. It’s the launcher/servers. Your copy and paste tier 1 tech support option is a poor attempt at customer service. “Oh it’s on your client end”… no it’s on the server end.


same issue for hours now and I honestly do not know what to do.

For those questioning today.

We all just suffer together with KB/s Speeds :slight_smile:

I found a solution! . . . Download Warzone 2 from Steam. . . I am sitting here watching Battlenet fail at 21 KB/s with Steam right next to it downloading at 35MB/s . . .

Activision Blizzard cannot do anything right and absolutely does not care about their customers as long as they are getting their money.

Somebody really needs to lead a charge on getting everybody to sell their stock and make their company’s value hit the ground. Maybe then they will gain a little bit of humility.


try downloading from Steam

It is impossible to download any game, at first it takes an eternity to start downloading, and when it does, the download goes at 100-300 kb/s. I have done everything blizzard technical support has done to fix it, clean %folders%. Fix the launcher, because it’s ******* garbage right now.


Same here, for me it’s a max of 80 KB/s. I have tested my internet and been able to download other things on other launchers as well. So that means it’s only battle.net

useless. only Blizzard/battle.net!! every time…

same problem here…downloading warzone 2.0 with 313 B/s…

Same. Every time there is a big release the servers grind to a halt, useless!

Having the same problem. Internet speed is super fast.

Same issue. Tried everything. No issues anywhere else - Steam, streaming, download/upload tests.

Uninstalled/reinstalled Bnet.
Changed server zones from NA to EU and back to NA.
Scan and Repair fails (error code) - for some reason this temporarily boosted speeds from 1-2MB/s to 8MB/s for about 5ish minutes.
Updated all drivers.
Updated all anti-virus/windows updates/etc.

yup battlenet client is dogsh1t. why i purchased MW2 on steam. never have the issues on there.

Same, they should be embarrassed that Blizzard in Q4 2022 can’t have a proper server setup. What a laughing stock.
