    : What is max download speed on Xbox?
    Whilst a direct comparison with Steam would seem right, don't forget about Microsoft's other non-gaming services...given the surge in demand on Microsoft products (not just Windows but things like Teams etc), it would make sense that they would limit bandwidth in some areas to cater for others...whilst gaming is important, having high speed downloads isn't as important as having the bandwidth for office virtual meetings etc.

    Could be wrong but that is what seems to make sense to me...then again, I didn't have a console before the pandemic so no clue what speeds were like then....and my line doesn't get near 100 anyway (think it's currently around 70 and doesn't get throttled)

    Why does installing. Gta take 72 hours

    Hi there,

    the download speed is usually determined by your own internet connection. If you want to know the details for that you may have to contact your ISP and verify that with what your console (or PC) is measuring.

    Also try to see if there is a difference between using a cable or wifi.

    Depending on the max download speed it will take a certain time. If your download speed is like max 10mbps and a game is like 60GB then download at a max 4.5GB per hour which means it will take over 13 hours.

    If your download speed is 2mbps download time will be over 68 hours.

    Could be throttling due to covid, but then my ISP hasn't throttled as steam downloads full speed. Which begs another question, why does Microsoft throttle the download speeds when Steam has around 30 million more monthly users than Xbox does? If anything I'd have thought MS would have had the technology to keep up with demand more than Steam could.

    What is max download speed on Xbox?

    Well that's precisely my point. I had 80mb Internet before for £10 a month and downloads were solid 80mb, now paying £60 for gig Internet and get 20mb more download. Really feel like max download should be documented or advertised somewhere for this exact reason. Especially with new consoles having such pathetic hard drive space, people rely on downloads alot more now

    Hello ModernEpic, My name is Jesse. I'm an Independent Advisor and a member of the Microsoft community and I'd love to assist you today.

    The thing is the servers need to reserve bandwidth for other users, so they throttle usage. Also the rates you are seeing are around 100MB/S, which may be maxing the write speed of the hard drive. I'm not sure the true max write speed for the included drive, but in practice I wouldn't expect it to be more than 100 - 200MB/S. So all in all, anything around 100MB/S is quite solid.

    Hope this helps.

    Jesse.

    Ah, apologies...my brain decided that reading your entire first post was unecessary!! I missed the part about majority of your downloads being 100....yeah, I wouldn't be happy with that either if in your place
