I have had my xbox account for almost 7 years, and my current one for about 4 or so. I have always had download speeds similar to my other devices with it, that is to say, very fast, as I have a pretty high bandwidth cable account.
But over the last few weeks suddenly my download speeds are extremely slow. Like, 27 minutes to download a 68 mb file slow. My other devices still work fine, and would download something of that size in seconds. I had changed no settings. I have since tried forwarding the applicable xbox ports on my router (something I've never had to do before) and it still makes no difference.
My girlfriend recently purchased an xbox for the kinect functionality, and it too downloads extremely slowly here.
Is XBL just having issues with slow download speeds and it's not just me? Or did magically my network suddenly not want to download things ONLY from my xbox at full speed anymore?
Anyone have any advice?
