    Feature Suggestion -- Bandwidth throttling


    With the size of content on XBox One, I'm running into a pretty major problem with the XBox hogging our internet connection when downloading content. I have a fairly modest connection (3Mbps down / ~400Kbps up) and when Xbox is downloading, it basically
    shuts down the internet for any other devices. And given that some of the downloads are downright huge (working on a 3GB
    patch for Call of Duty Ghosts right now), this can shut things down for a significant amount of time.

    What I would suggest is for the Xbox system to have a configurable bandwidth throttling setting that would allow me to limit the device's usage (with separate settings for download and upload) to a maximum amount of usage. This should probably only apply
    to content downloads, obviously, as throttling games, streaming video content, etc wouldn't make much sense.

    :)

    Bandwidth throttling when streaming

    Hi.

    I have an XBOX ONE, which is connected to my LAN on Cat 5e cabling. My switch is GBit and I have verified the speed.

    When I stream from the XBOX to any of my Windows 10 PCs I get network quality problems, despite the streaming test states all quality settings are good. When I display the network bandwidth whilst playing it never goes above 20mbit.

    When I check the detailed network statistics directly on the XBOX I get a download speed of 40mbit and an upload speed of 9mbit. That's consistent with my broadband connection. When I check the detailed network statistics whilst streaming my download speed
    is 1.15mbit but my upload speed remains the same.

    All the PCs are current moderate gaming grade. I have replaced the gbit switch with another and I have replaced all cables.

    As the streaming is on the internal wired GBit LAN, how is it possible to still have bandwidth issues, except if the XBOX throttles?

    Could someone who knows more about XBOX's help please?

    Thanks.

    Peter

    Microsoft should implant a speed test.

    ^You shouldn't but that's the way it is. Most ISP's suck. The most annoying thing for me is bandwidth throttling.

    Feature Suggestion -- Bandwidth throttling

    Hey there,

    That's an interesting suggestion. These are the Support forums so we can't help you here directly, but what you should do is head over to
    Xbox Ideas, powered by UserVoice and make the suggestion there (or upvote a similar one, if one already exists). This is the feedback site for all things Xbox (Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Xbox.com) and read by the actual
    development team, so over there it is more likely to be seen by someone that can make this happen.

    Xbox one S won’t connect to iPhone personal hotspot

    I suggest you check and see if you have a bandwidth limit where you will be throttled down if you exceed it. The XBOXdoes have minimum bandwidth requirements and if you have been throttled due to exceeding a limit that could very well be your problem.

    It may be an issue with disney.

    Aren't they currently throttling bandwidth so atmos and 5.1 isn't available?

    Slow download speeds

    My guess would be youve been throttled or capped for using so much bandwidth. You need to call Verizon
