You can easily limit the download bandwidth used by EA Origin desktop app in a few steps. Note that you can limit the download rate when out of games as well as during gameplay.

  1. Click on “Orgin” then select “Application Settings” from the drop-down menu.

  2. Look at the “Download restrictions” section. You can now set the maximum Origin download speed here. Recommended settings:

    – Maximum download rate when out of game: 1 MB/s
    – Maximum download rate when during gameplay: 512 KB/s

Everything will automatically be saved. Now you can play an online game without lag while downloading or updating a game in Origin desktop app.
