First post here, long time user of STEX... downloading speeds on my end have not improved (and have infact worsened) and I am met with 3 hour long downloads for a 2 mb file! Frustrating! At the moment I am downloading a single file at 31 Bps. Reminds me of the old days with dial up! But perhaps i will attempt the downloads at an off peak time (3 am pacific) and see if there is any improvement.
