Help: Engine downloading at 1/10th possible download speed?
Speedtest.net claims my download speed is approximately 5 MB/S. Unfortunately, the engine seems to be downloading at 400-600kb/sec instead. How can I fix this?
It seems to me like you are confusing bits and bytes. ISPs like to to report their speed in bits per second as that allows them to advertise a higher number, while your OS and most programs tend to use bytes.
Notice how the speed test uses a lower case b which is short for bit, while Unreal uses an upper case B which is short for byte. If we convert the 607.4 kilobytes to megabits we get 607.4 * 8 / 1000 = 4.86 megabit.
So the good news is that Unreal downloads at almost your maximum possible speed. The bad news is that the only way to get it to go faster is to upgrade your internet connection.
