So this is a strange problem I can't seem to fix I have 1GB Broadband Average of 945mbs.

When I am downloading games on my PC through any provider steam, origin, epic, or other I have no issue with download speed about 117.5MBs, but when I open up chrome and I don't even do anything or open up a app with limited internet connectivity my download speed drops to about 90MBs then if I watch a youtube video on chrome while downloading the download is 50MBs now a 1080p video only can take up no more than say 8MBs of bandwidth maybe a little more when required not 67MBs but I don't see this issue with other devices on the network so if I watch a video on my phone while downloading on the PC no issues. I have 2.5GB port on my motherboard but no controling software to manage bandwidth no anti virus it seem the traffic sent to the PC is negotiated from Super Hub or something I'm not seeing when been sent to my pc.

Anyone had a simalar issue and no a fix it seems to affect productivity because it now takes x2 the speed when doing a simple task when I was on 550mb internet average no issues like this but the speed its going I might aswell be on that if I want to multitask. Happens both on Windows 10 and 11.

Hi @eL3cc,

Welcome to our Community Forums and thanks for your post.

Sorry you're having this issue with your speed dropping whilst using Google Chrome.

Do you notice this happening on any other browser?

What happens when you use modem mode with a PC?

I notice this issue with everything I do I could open notepad or open control panel or even calculator on windows and bandwidth allocation kicks in

Thanks for coming back to us @eL3c,

I've not been able to identify any issues this end that could be causing this. 

How have things been over the last week?
