I just upgrade my internet. The speed did increase according to google speed test, but steam is still only around 8-10MB/s like before I upgraded.

Steam pretty much maxes out my connection at 7 MB per second ( not to be confused with 7Mbps)

I too peak at roughly 5-10 MB/s, but that's likely because I'm using a powerline adapter instead of being connected directly to my modem.

Steam hits about 8.5 MB/s for me which is above my speed cap.

On Wi-Fi (Use to be close but it's far now) I would hit my cap of 7.5 MB/s but since I'm on Ethernet now I guess there's some overhead leakage so I get upto 8.5 MB/s. Pretty nice.

Explain why MSI needs our laptops on top of the wholesale cost they're already get from us in their GT72(s)/GT80(s) trade in program? MSI isn't to be trusted!
