When i download games

My current bandwidth usage shows 2.10 mb

But game doesn't download at 2mb

It takes 3-4 mins to download 2mb

I tried restarting router.

Disconnecting every device from router but same speed

It shows 2mb but downloads around 400kb

Help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Hi there, I think I know what's going on here.

The Bandwidth Meter displays your current bandwidth in megabits per second but what you are downloading is showing the speed at megabytes. These two data measurements are different.

bit is 1 bit

byte is 8 bits

This means that the speed what you are seeing in the bandwidth meter is 8 times larger than what you are seeing in your download.

I hope this helped and that this is what you were confused about. However, if you already knew this and I misunderstood you, sorry for wasting your time! :)

Bandwidth usage always takes measures of how much data (Kilobyte, Megabyte, Gigabyte etc.) you've actually downloaded, as opposed to download- and upload speed, where these are measured in bits per second (Kbit/s, Mbit/s, Gbit/s etc.). However, these two correspond with one and the other, as per Term Royal's previous post.

Hey JackTheHuntr,

As the others above mentioned, you may be misreading how your console is displaying the statistics.

However, regardless, that is a pretty slow connection there.

Could you please provide the following information:

- Router make/model

- Type of wireless connection (2G or 5G)

- Region/country

- ISP

Thanks in advance! :)
