[Speed Problem] Very Slow Download on Origin Game

Hi All

Just did a clean install on Windows 8 Pro 64bit PC, Redownloading Battlefield 3 Limited/Premium Edition in Origin, and currently Download Speed doesn't go above 160kbs a second. Been Running for about 21 hours now, and about 15 more hours to go.

Is there any way to speed this up? Is my Elite DSL getting the proper speed?

No answer for you, but a datapoint: I myself downloaded BF3 from Origin within the past week. ATT IPDSLAM 12/1 service. Moto 2210-02-1ATT modem. Windows 7 Home 64-bit. BF3 file was about 18 GB. Download proceeded at my services max capable real-world speed -- averaging over 11600 Kbps (I sync at 11996 Kbps) and took a little less than 3:45 hours.

A Good 20 Hours, did speed up after I reset the Gateway Device though, Paused it around 20 percent, and reset the gateway, and all the PC's on the network, and then it sped up to about 600kbps or around that for a while

It seems U-verse has inherited some of the old Cable modem fits, that a power cycle seems to clear out.
