Speed Up Game Installs

Game installs and downloads are incredibly slow, speed up downloads and put more of the Xbox's power to installing especially when its doing nothing else

    So I don’t understand why my Xbox’s network statistic shows 550mbs per second download speeds but when I download a freaking game it runs at 80-150????

    Can someone give me an advice or help in any way? I bought an Xbox a few days ago and I've only been able to play one game because it's so incredibly slow to install/download the games. The internet is fast enough for ever so people in the house to all be doing their own thing with no problem but for some reason it takes hours to install a 14gb game and it won't run any higher than an average of about 7Mb/s. What can I do to speed it up and why is this happening?

    Internet speed is not the problem JzaSmaCk. The problem is being okay with waiting 45 mins to play a game. I finally bought an Xbox One S and have only played one game so far because I get so frustrated waiting for updates and downloads. By the time the game is loaded you don't even want to play it anymore. I may end up putting this system back in it's box and just continue playing my 360 so I can remain sane.

    As some of these other ppl said, if you want a faster install get better internet, it only takes about 45 mind for me to install a 50gig game if that's not fast enough for you you might want an isp with like a gig down

    The installs probably could be sped up, but the download speed depends mostly upon your internet speed.

    Ooooor, just get rid of installing altogether and let us be able to play off the disc like how we did for the X-box 360?

    After recently reinstalling Halo 5: Guardians, I can attest to the fact that the Xbox One needs to be able to work with greater processing power to install content.

    There should be an option to get the Xbox One to focus on downloading games/apps/etc only. Like how it updates, removing all functionality so it's not doing other stuff at the same time.

    It's something you could choose if you want it to download whilst you aren't using the Xbox.

    This might be redundant, but apparently nearly 6000 people think this is an issue.

    Thanks to the latest update (November 2016 I think), I'm downloading games and updates at ~400mbps. So nice to have a console that can keep up with Steam!

    No worries I got deadrising 4. Had to cancel twice now because it's gotten to 73% and goes from around downloading 45-65 mb/s down to 1.5mb/s and read if it takes a while it could be a corrupt download. Not to sure how that's possible

    Can't be done the problem is the that the Xbox one uses a slow SATA connection to the harddrive. Because of this it is a hardware limitation and no update will change that.

    Their help video shows a game downloading and they show 150 mbs. 150! I get 6 if I'm lucky. Too many rich bastards making dumb decisions at Redmond.
