Video game downloads have been throttled due to coronavirus

Content delivery network Akamai has announced that it will throttle video game downloads during peak periods to manage congestion.

"As businesses and consumers around the world adjust their routines amid the various COVID-19 restrictions, the internet is being used at a scale that the world has never experienced," Akamai said.

Yeah noticed this last night when I queued up a game to download.... was humming along and then around 11pm it scaled back quite significantly for a good few hours.
