Same question asked here and ignored: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-Notebooks/Driver-Downloads-Throttled/m-p/7168518/thread-id/15...


Whenever downloading drivers from the HP support website, the speed is very slow (approx 0.5 to 1 mbps) on the corporate network, however, downloading the same from my home network results in very fast downloads.


We regularly need to download the latest drivers and firmware for approx 12 different model HP desktops and laptops, and this is painfully slow.


This appears to be HP throttling the download speed for selected public IPs. How can I get HP to whitelist my corporate IP address so I am not throttled so badly?


And no, this is not caused by the corporate network, proxy, firewall, ISP.

If there is a white list - you cannot get to it from the Community.




The Community is not HP, Inc. nor do we have any insight or influence on what HP does with its server farms, its network, its support for Enterprise environments.


We simply do not have any way to engage HP in a corporate / enterprise conversation about data service.


I can confirm that things have been slower in the Community for some time now - some connections for copying larger data are more noticeably slower simply because the larger data is slower to begin with (not instant). 


Although things have settled a bit, there has been a massive spike in all activity for which we (the community) have any visibility (things we can see).  HP, like other large companies, is very busy - the server farms are busy, the networks are busy, the customer response centers are busy, the entire operation has been running beyond normal boundaries for a while.


If you feel that your Enterprise work environment needs attention, have your IT contact your HP contract representative and have the conversation with HP.


If your company does not have a corporate contract (ask your IT department first since it is possible the company does so) - then pick a covered system / workstation that has been impacted and submit a call to HP Support under that system's serial number.  Start the conversation about the one system and explain to the support representative that you are concerned your data is being slowed.
