Xbox download speed terrible

Hi there, when I run the network speed test via my Xbox settings I am getting circa 400mps download speeds. However, when downloading games it is only circa 30mps? I can’t understand the difference?

I have a hard wired connection.

thanks

ben

Games consoles are notorious for speed tests.

What is your connection like using a direct connection with a Cat 5E or better ethernet cable between the Hub and a 1Gbs capable Pc/Mac/Chromebook ?

Re: Xbox download speed terrible

Speedtest tests your connection speed to/from the speedtest server with the lowest ping, downloads are from the Xbox Live servers... at Christmas... in the midst of a pandemic lockdown for the majority of the UK and following a new console launch, it's easy to see why one of those would be significantly different from he other.
