Steam hoging internet speed

Recommended Posts

 Built new computer for my son last night. Everything went well. This morning I tried to download some things. Internet running slow. Reset modem. No help. I notice Steam was running in the back ground. Exited out of Steam . Internet speed went back up to were it supposed to be. I live in the country so I only get Uverse 18meg down. With Steam running I only get 3.5 meg down. I want him to game but at that speed I don't think he will be able to. Is there a fix for that?

Go into Steam's Settings and click on the Download tab. From there you can set up a time for it to update, a certain bandwidth to reach and stay there, and to throttle the downloading if you use Steam In-Home Streaming.
