How to fix slow Battle.net downloading speed?
Method 1: Close other active applications

- In the search box, you’ll need to type or paste power and sleep settings
- Now, click on Power & Sleep Settings from the results
- Scroll down to the Sleep section and then click on the down arrow before choosing Never
Method 5: Close/suspend any background downloads
