PMDG download speed??

Recommended Posts

so i am on a new computer trying to reinstall all my PMDG products but it says they are gonna take over 4 hours to download, they are only downloading at 86kb/s when my speed is in fact 150mb/s down and upload

any idea as to why this is happening?? its only the PMDG download everything else from other sites are downloading at a very fast speed. any help would be appreciated

There can be cable works in your area or multiple users on your network. Multiple things that can cause lower download speeds.

PMDG uses Amazon Worldwide Cloud servers.... the bottleneck is not at that end.

I'm not trying to convince you of anything my friend.... fact is PMDG doesn't have it's own servers. They are in the Amazon cloud.

Try a couple of things.  First run something like "Speed Test" to determine available download speeds.  Choose a location that's distant to get a feel for the overall backbone speed.  Install something like Internet Download Manager https://www.internetdownloadmanager.com/

which takes advantage of the ability to run several simultaneous streams which speed up the download considerably.  

Finally, reboot everything to make sure that you don't have a internal compatibility problem, i.e. running your connection half-duplex   should be full-duplex.

After such a big download I‘d reboot my router first... and check that I don‘t have any provider restrictions... temporary internet files may be full... sth like that... PMDG downloads can‘t be slow actually, as amazon servers manage themselves for max dl speed...

As Dan wrote our installers are on Amazon Cloud. There are no reported outages on their infrastructure.
