Why is my download speed stays always at 1.3mbps?
To be more precise i try to download some games from Steam or Uplay and the speed is always capped at 1.3mbps. It is always stable and without unusual drops so i get the feeling that it might depend by the writing speed on my hdd or the limit od my ISP. What can i check to determinate the exact reason?

The write speed of a hard drive is going to be faster than most people's internet connections. Downloads are almost always limited by the speed of your internet unless you have an extremely fast connection.
A download speed of 1.3 MBps (megabytes per second) is about the same as a 10 Mbps (megabit) connection, which is a common level of service so it seems to check out.
