Xbox One Speed vs PC Speed - SH2AC - Something is wrong here

Hello,

 

I'm downloading a 340MB game on to my Xbox One, and it is only downloading at about 3.4Mbits per second.

 

Screenshots:

 

Xbox One download speed, and usage history:

 

 

NAT is fine:

 

 

Speed test, on wireless, from PC:

 

 

What's going on here?

I had issues like this on my SH2

 

Found a little fix on Google.

 

This fix shouldn't mess with anything.

 

Go into your Network settings on the xbox and change your DNS settings to:

 

Primary 8.8.8.8

Secondary 8.8.4.4

 

 

Then clear alternate mac, restart.

Already tried that, it makes little to no noticeable difference - there's quite a few on the Xbox forums also complaining. I've posted up over there, too, to see if Microsoft know what's up.

I heard it's just the UK ISP's weren't made for the XB1. So that's why. No way around it.

From a technical view, that's wholly incorrect. A compatibility issue can only lie between the router and the device connecting to it.

Hi Jack123

 

Thanks for posting. Unfortunately Xbox speed tests are unreliable and not an accurate reflection of your broadband speed. Your PC speed test is looking healthy so everything looks ok there.

 

Thanks


The do's and don'ts. Keep the community welcoming for all. Follow the house rules

Hi Ty,

 

The download speed test my Xbox is showing is the actual speed in which it is downloading the games, which is ridiculously slow. I'm trying to work out why it is so slow on the Xbox One compared to PC? I've tried everything... there must be an incompatibility somewhere.
