    I want to ask, im currently downloading now Dota 2, im so annoyed becuz my download speed goes high for like 290 kbps then suddenly goes down to 0 bytes, for almost like 10-15 secs? then goes back up to normal again.. How to fix this? I have a good internet i can even play HoN very well can please teach me how to fix this?

    And BTW, if i play Dota 2 with beta key, would i still buy the full game if ever it will be officially released? Thanks... :cool1::cool1::cool1:

    Choose a download server which is close to your region.

    Stop your bittorrent client, any active downloads etc. and wait patiently. When I download from the nearest region to me the speed is about 4 mb/s, so the problem might be in your internet provider.

    Sometimes steam is just like that. I have no idea how to fix it

    what do you mean? Dota 2 will be F2P?

    F2P for those who got beta keys.

    Noody knows if Dota will be F2p, most likely it will be B2p

    I think there's no solution to this, i experienced the same. Whenever it dropped i paused the DL and started again, that way it went straight to max dl speed :)

    For future reference, if the server closest to you don't work well, chose one a bit further away. Sometimes one server is overloaded and choosing another one helps. Try to find out where the mayor internet routes go through, so you can choose one that has a good connection to you.

    I think dota2 might be a F2P but I hope it to be a B2P :/

    change your region to different regions close to you. Also try changing the download speed. From 256 to 512 so on and so forth. Worked for me.

    Hopefully it will be F2P but no one knows for sure.
