    Ways to reduce internet data usage on Xbox 360?


    My ISP has a data cap. So I am going through my devices and trying to make sure they use as little data as possible. I am down to the 360.

    I have no clue on this device.

    - For one, I don't even know how to disconnect from being online without signing out of my Profile. Is there a way the 360 will just sign into the profile without connecting to the internet? That way, I can choose when I want to connect online?

    - How can I disable advertisements and live tiles on the home screens? This might be using some data because they are basically video clips. And the tiles are updated with information I don't care about.

    Any other things that could be using data?

    Any help and recommendations are appreciated!!

    :)

    Bing Backgrounds

    It shouldn't be a problem with your internet connection. To reduce data usage (On mobile phones, xbox, and other consumer products), the bing background does not always change automatically, it is cached.

    So when you hit 'search' your bing background should change to today's picture once you exit.

    Streaming Xbox One games to Windows 10 - Need help

    Maybe that is the case, I have no way to check the data usage right now other than through the windows 10 network settings. I might just ring up our isp tomorrow and check what they say our data usage has been. Just out of curiosity though how come it shouldn't use internet data?

    Ways to reduce internet data usage on Xbox 360?

    1) Unplug your ethernet cable/forget the network if you use wifi

    2) No there isn't but those ads don't take up much data

    At least according to my ISP, it rates Xbox Live multiplayer as using 6-8GB of data based off of playing 5 hours a day every day per month. So it's not that bad.

    I'm pretty sure this is something that Xbox has done to help reduce the amount of internet usage in these tough times.

    Internet data usage

    Hi Melion,

    Thanks for coming to the forums. We understand you have question on how much data a game uses. This would be best answered first by developers. As we don't have that type of data. The only other thing is to monitor the usage yourself over a period of time.

    Thanks,

    Brad

    What is this?!?!

    Hey LadyJadey,

    Thanks for posting, and sorry to see the high bandwidth usage! Has your Xbox One's data usage looked accurate after 5/31? This may have been a visual bug, and your Xbox One console most likely has not reached anywhere near 3,600 TB of data usage. The most
    reliable tool to check internet usage will be through your ISP. Any bandwidth usage your Xbox One console actually uses will reflect on the ISP side. I would not worry about your Xbox One console using that much data unless your ISP is reflecting the same
    amount of usage.

    Hope this helps clear up the issue!
