Xbox download speeds, are Virgin "managing" it?

Just wondered what other users are getting generally on xbox live downloads with Virgin? I'm on their 100Mbps service and whilst I can get 130Mbps on my PC i'm yet to see 100Mbps on the xbox downloading anything from gamepass.

It generally hovers around 50-60Mbps for me, and rarely goes any higher.

It's normally microsoft's end, I've got 1Gig with Virgin and I've never seen over 600mbps on my xbox, happens with their pc servers too.

Thats interesting, because when I do a speed check on the xbox it hits full bandwidth for me, but downloading its 60% of that tops.

Maybe Microsoft is throttling it.

Probably because my download average is normally 300mbps, but the speed test is normally 940 down and 52 up. MS are known to be bogged down even with window's updates
