XBOX LIVE - INTENTIONAL SPEED CAP

I just noticed that xbox live is intentionally capping its downloads speeds to half of my internet speed.

I ran several speedtests on various websites and my internet is running at peak performance.

So I look at the download graph in my router while downloading a demo, zune update, streaming Black Ops 2 trailer, GOW Judgement trailer, & arcade game download.

ALL CAPPED AT THE EXACTLY SAME SPEED.

When doing test several weeks ago..... download speeds where at maxing out my internet speed. So something has changed on MICROSOFT's side.

The stupid thing about it is that MICROSOFT set a speed cap so LOW that their BLACK OP 2 & GOW JUDGEMENT trailer are all BUFFERING... BUFFERING.... BUFFERING.....

Somebody really dropped the ball at MICRoSOFT.

Very true lol

Perhaps Xbox Live uploads content at a certain speed to ensure bandwidth is equitably shared worldwide on Xbox Live.

What is that going to do? PSN is alot slower on update and downloading then xbox Live.

Just to add... i test my speed by download Windows 7 SP1 off the Microsoft website... and its NOT CAPPED. Maxing out my internet speed.
