    Latency while downloading.

    So this is a problem that all gamers in SA face. Too many games of counterstrike and dota are punctuated by "F*** I'm lagging" followed shortly by (off stage) "WHO THE HELL IS DOWNLOADING?". All the research I have done suggests that it's only South Africans that get high ping/latency when...
