View Full Version : Unbelievably Slow Download Speeds - Far Cry 4

I'm trying to downlad Far Cry 4 but the speed is unacceptably slow.
Uplay is downloading the game at around 15kb/s even though I get 5 or 6mb/s on Steam and Origin.
How can I fix this? At the current speed, Uplay tells me that my download will be finished in 2 months.
Is there any way you can provide an alternative downloader similar to GOG.com so I can download Far Cry 4 and then activate it in Uplay.
Any help would be much appreciated.

go to settings (the little gear icon thingy next to downloads on the main uplay window)
select settings
select network
check allow proxy
select forced for the proxy type
find an Http proxy and put the IP address and port --> http://www.publicproxyservers.com/proxy/list1.html

enjoy faster, (but not really fast) download speeds I went from 30kbps to 500.. still an hour to download what should take my 18mbps Uverse connection mere seconds to download.

but better than it was.

(optional ) thank me in a reply

Cheers!

If one of the boxes under the Network tab is already checked, you can also try simply unchecking both. Let us know how it goes!
