Slow Internet Speeds

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690-00xx

Hello. My family and I are running satellite internet, which is always super slow, expensive, and we can only pull 100 GB/month before it's practically unusable. Because of this, I have to resort to using my hotspot, which is better for playing online, but not so much for downloading stuff. I'm trying to download Red Dead Redemption 2, and it says that it will take over 20 days to complete. My average speed is about 80 KB/s and its a 108 GB game. I'm not willing to wait that long and need another solution. Is there a place I can take my pc to in order to download it? Maybe a gaming store that I can pay to have it downloaded? I need other alternatives to my hotspot, as it is crazy slow. Thank you!

@Andrew05,

Your limited internet speed situation is a problem that could be remedied only from a high speed connection.  If the download is an .exe file. (which you would have to inquire about),  I could suggest an external USB data storage device.  Still, the download site could be an issue, ie public library with cable high speed internet,  trusted neighbor?

@Andrew05,

Aside from that issue, what is your exact model number?

Requirements of RDR2 may exceed your limited system.

You need an HP proprietary 400W PSU (has the PCIe 6+2 power plug), and a GTX 1060 . Then you need 12GB of RAM and the minimum equivalent of an I7-4770k CPU or better, which is a minimum of the AMD Ryzen 7-1700X.

Your data stream will be 150MB per hour.

I don't know my exact model number, but I did upgrade my RAM very recently. I have a Ryzen 5 2400G, 16 GB of RAM, and a Radeon RX580. I can normally run Forza Horizon 4 at an average of 80 fps on high settings, so I didn't think it would be a problem.

Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system OS: Windows 10 - April 2018 Update (v1803) Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-4770K / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X Memory: 12 GB RAM Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB / AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB Network: Broadband Internet connection Storage: 150 GB available space Sound Card: Direct X Compatible

 

On Steam, this is the recommended hardware. I have a very similar CPU, and a better GPU. I tested my specs on the website you sent, and it said everything would be fine.
