GTAC download experience (updated)

Back in September of 2014, I posted a thread titled GTAC download experience. I was trying to download ST7 and was having a heck of a time with their servers. It's fairly rare that I express dissatisfaction but I did so in the hopes that things would get better.

 

I'm very happy to report that the ST8 download went much better. Today I was able to download the full ST8 installer (3.5 GB) in 4 minutes and 30 seconds, from my browser, with zero issues. I had a peak download speed of 119 Mbps and averaged around 105 Mbps. Now that's the kind of user experience I expect in 2015. There aren't enough kudos on the Internet to express my satisfaction level. Good job goes out to the GTAC team for fixing this issue. I'm sure they would love to hear your experiences as well so leave a reply and let them know.

Hi Jason,

 

I dream of connection speeds like that.... Robot tongue

My download went through, as normal, without a hitch,....but took a touch over 2 hours to squeeze the data through all the traps.
