Download speed setting (2 posts)

    Fetch is taking all the bandwidth from my internet connection. I have some large files I deal with, and would like to have a way to limit the download speed, in order to keep some bandwidth open for emails, or whatever else I might need at the time.

    I can't see a setting. Is there one, or if not, can one be added to a future update?

    Thanks for the great application.

    Currently Fetch does not have a way to limit the download speed, sorry. But thanks for the feedback, we'll consider it for a future release.

    In the meantime there are several third-party products for limited bandwidth usage. You might investigate IPNetSentryX from Sustainable Softworks; this article explains how it can help.

    Two other products are Throttled Pro and Throttled, but we have no experience with those.
