Xbox downloads slower than they should be

Above.

 

I'm on the Unlimited 76 Mb p/s package, and the downloads on my current gen Xbox Series X are rather slow most of the time, I just downloaded the latest large update for CyberPunk 2077, and it's took me most of this week to download a 23 Gig patch.

I work it out that at 70 Mb, a 32.5 Gig patch should take about 330 seconds so 5 and half minutes thereabouts and it's took hours.

What gives? I know when I was on PN about 7 and half years ago the BT Engineer told me you throttle Xbox in favour of the Sony box, is this still the case?

Re: Xbox downloads slower than they should be

PN have never throttled PSN over XBOX.
My PSN download speeds have never hit line speed - a 20GB patch for Cold War took an hour for me this morning.

Also are you using wired or wireless? That makes a difference

I'm also on the unlimited fibre package and was fine at first but now lucky to get 20mbps and in fact just tested and upload was better than download ! Maybe a more general fibre issue ?

Re: Xbox downloads slower than they should be

@sheffpete  Or maybe a phone line going south. Is it noisy?

 

As for a '32.5 Gig patch should take about 330 seconds so 5 and half minutes thereabouts'. Dream on. 😁

 

So many variables and you are assuming they are sending it at max speed. As for 5mins, the other night I had to download 25Gb's on a 500Mb/s connection and that took around 30mins with the server sync rate varying at times. I then found that I had another download which was only 8Gb and that took nearer 45mins as the server slowed right down at times.

 

Try going to download-time.com for a rough estimate of your download time, assuming everything is good and the server keeps up, you'll find your download time would be around the hour mark, not 5 minutes! There at bits and bytes.  

Ever helpful. Grin Sure, I’d love to help you out. Now which way did you come in?
