Oh, my bad. Missed that in the original post. Sorry, I get really snippy about internet speed assumptions. I lived in a rural area for years where they are particularly bad, so it's a hot button topic for me.
PenutBrittle: Guess what, not everyone in the world is lucky enough to have access to a 100MBps connection like yourself. Go figure.
Miaghstir: He was likely not trying to be snide, but probably figured that JMich has one (since that's what he mentioned: "With a download speed of 100 MBps, it takes me ~2.5 days to download everything.") and commented that with that speed it certainly shouldn't take such a long time to fetch the complete GOG collection. Meaning that if the ISP is advertising 100 Mbps speeds, JMich isn't getting anywhere near the advertised speed (and should bash his ISP over the head with a baseball bat for lying).
But yes, I do apologize. Could it be that we're being a bit confused between MBps and Mbps?
