We have FTTP 900Mbs broadband and my Xbox only gets 30-50Mbps download on updates. It’s hard wired to the router. Any suggestions.
I've just Googled this for you and ittit would appear that Microsoft cap the download speed at 50mbps...
Hello! I have 60mb showing as my speed on my xbox. But downloading a game is only allowing me on average 8MB. Taking hours to download. Anything I can do?
I rebooted the router and got it to 400Mbps. Don’t think Microsoft throttle it. Will keep an eye on it.
@GPKINS1 don't confuse megabits with megabytes. You're probably connected at 60Mbps but downloading at 8MBps... There are 8 bits to a byte so you'll be downloading at the maximum speed if that's the case
@SJT84 I Googled it and there's lots of people from all over the world moaning about it... I'd run a download and see what speed you actually get as there's a difference in sync speed and actual download speed
I have just upgraded to FTTP 900 in the last week and I'm having the same problem. Had the BT Smart Hub 1 and 300mbps FTTP and both our wired Xbox's would download at between 200-300mbps. As soon as 900 came online Xbox downloads dropped to 30-50mbps max. The FTTP900 came online before the Smarthub 2 arrived so I don't think it was a router issue, I then installed the Smarthub 2 router and the Xbox's are still the same at 30-50mbps download speed. If I reboot the box it will sometimes reconnect the download at 200-300mbps but after a while it goes back down to 30-50mbps. This would suggest to me that BT are throttling Xbox speeds on FTTP 900? Although this is an old thread I thought I would just a more recent post with the same issue.
So why did it only start happening when I got FTTP 900 and it was fine on FTTP 300?
