I just bought the Sims 3 Supernatural, which is 2.27 GB, and I'm 50 minutes in. It says it will be done in about 66 hours, which is ridiculous. My computer isn't particularly fast or new, but my internet is fairly fast, so can anyone tell me why the download is going so slow? Or how to make it a bit faster? It also keeps losing connection, even though I am right next to my router and modem.

Some people just get crappy download speeds on Amazon. You could always use Origin... *shudders

Why would you even suggest such a thing!

Try killing the download altogether, and restarting. You may have got a bad server, when you try again it will use a different server usually--or choose a different "mirror" if it gives you a choice.

You could reboot your PC and router/modem [=unplug for 20 seconds] as a last resort if you can't get a fast connection.
