Singapore Steam Content Server! lennardseah May 19th, 07, 11:50 AM #1

no longer will you have to wait millions of hours to download your steam based files - singapore now has a steam content server for lightning fast download!

how to switch to it:
stop steam, delete c:\program files\steam\clientregistry.blob, start steam.

i tested and it only took me less than an hour to download css (on a 10mbps singtel line) - previously used to be days

you will know you are using it when you see a fragnetics-fat green pipe ad

At home and LANs (eg e2max), when entering server the progress bar will always be 3/4 full and pause for a few seconds at sending info before the progress bar starts getting full and you can enter the server.

So not much of waiting time but yeah sure anything improvement is good but at the moment the loading is not a pain in the ass and is fine.
