Why when I do a speed test on the xbox is it slower then what my laptop reads? Both are hard wired but the speed reading on xbox always results in being a few Mbps slower. I have read issues about latency being high because it goes to the Seattle servers.
Would this be the reason for the slower speed reading?
I haven't noticed my speeds changing, but have noticed latency is though the roof. Usually run about 30ms testing states around me. Testing with the X1 gives me around 90 to 107; which is roughly what I get with testing from the Detroit, MI area to Modesto,
CA. If I test Washington state, I'm creeping up to 200ms sometimes.
I get 26ms on my iMac and PC but close to 200ms on my Xbox. I hear it's something to do with the servers being based so far away. Hopefully there is a long term solution for this as I can sometimes get quite bad lag on CoD and I don't want to have trouble
with playing online when my 360 performed so well with every game I bought.
I get the latency prob. It's usually 27ms on the laptop but 160ms through the xbox. Just thought its coz I'm in the uk. My download is around 7mbps on the laptop (not the best I know 😞) but is around 5mbps on the xbox. Can't wait for the summer when my
area gets fibre BB.
I dont think there is a way to check on the server locations itself only as a whole sadly from
support.xbox.com/.../xbox-live-status only MS has that ability it could be totally possible that one of them could be down
