your getting bits and bytes confused.

 

13mB/s  is about 165mb/s

 

Seems about right

I have 100 megabits down, but steam reads download speed in megabytes so I only get 12.5 down max.

I know that especially downloading games for some reason really affects the cpu. Actually downloading things in general from steam takes a lot of CPU power. I don't know why, but it does.

Can you post a screenshot of the steam download speed, as well as the network details (right click on the graph in task manager)

still seems a bit low, but reasonble.

 

 

I'm connected to the closest servers in my country but I'm on wireless so it's to be expected right now

I've got 100 Mbits/S down and Steams downloads at 12,5 MBytes/S, so it seems about right, you have 200 Mbits/S down but you might not be getting more than 100 Mbits/S because your network adapter is only 100 Mbits/S. Go to Settings (Windows) / Network / Change Adaptor Settings (or something like that, I don't have Windows in English) and double click on your actual connection.You should get this window:

If you see there it says the speed of the connection, if it says 100 Mbits/S, that's why you're downloading at that speed.

Create a new topic also some sites maybe has bad servers or firefox has limited download speeds
