I will not go into the subject of what is/was being downloaded.....
If you are downloading something from the internet, say from Microsoft, then you browsing speeds will be slower than normal.
That is because when downloading, it use's up the majority of your available bandwidth.
If you are using a download program then the amount of bandwidth used can be adjusted via the settings --> Google
will be your helper here.
