slow download xbox one

 

It looks like Virgin media is throttling my Xbox at mac address level ( what it looks like )

the tests on my 350mb

via wired 30 to 50 mbits , wireless 30 - 50 Mbits

open edge browser on the xbox and goto to speedtest.net

https://www.speedtest.net/result/10189748118

 

55mbits

 

open my pc on same network 348mbits

https://www.speedtest.net/result/10189770303

 

Iphone 11 on wireless 348mbits

https://www.speedtest.net/result/i/4169693945

it has nothing to do with Xbox cdn as the edge browser on speednet test is also throttled.

xbox on gigabit network and on 5G wifi so what going on, 9gig game taking 30 minutes to download, not looking forward to downloading games on the series x taking over a day ?

It's been like this for a few months.

VM don't throttle, let alone a specific device.

You are assuming something based on your specfic results.

I'm sure if you ask other users of VM they will have different results.

Re: slow download xbox one

Hello

If you have a look at https://www.reddit.com/r/xboxone/comments/52h1f6/tech_xbox_one_slow_download_speeds_explainedguide/

it perfectly explains it. The VM connection doesnt know that there is an X Box connection all the external connection sees is a request from data from a server, then the router hands it back to the correct device, the slow speeds on X Box also happens on other consoles.

There is another post direct from MS - https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/xbox/forum/all/xbox-one-not-using-all-my-download-speed/e184ddd5...

Re: slow download xbox one

I agree if the MS servers are busy I get slower downloads but this does NOT explain why speednet speed test gets 55mbs on the xbox ( nothing to do with microsoft servers ) but EVERY other device in my house from the TV , phones or my PC's all get the full 350mbs
