    Default Update speeds

    I recently used my laptop after a week and did an update. I was surprised it took 20 minutes. I have a slow connection but get continuous1MBps from W10 updates and downloading the latest ZA. This fits with Speedtest of 9.39 Mbps. But these security updates never get above 50KBps. Perhaps the W10 updates and ZA download of a new version have been cached on my IP's server to cut down their costs from their connection to the US and these are not. Perhaps they come fron the Cloud. Is it conjestion on your server? The updates show as many isolated bursts of download on Glasswire.

    Default Re: Update speeds

    Do you find speeds improve if you shut down and re-run ZoneAlarm? Is this version 15.1.501.17249?

    I have the same problem, discussed on a couple of threads in the ZoneAlarm Anti-virus & Anti-spyware forum. My internet speed is 60Mbps, but ZoneAlarm updates take the form of isolated bursts as you describe, never going any faster than 56Kbps. This normally results in update failures. But if I restart ZoneAlarm and update it straight away, the download speed is up to 27Mbps without pauses. Only for a short while, though, later updates are back to the normal slow speeds.
