Low download speed?

Hi folks,
So I've eir fibre BB. Have downloaded games to the xbone fine until yesterday. Started downloading a game and the speed is like 40-50 kbps!
Run speed test and I'm getting 130mbps.
It's not the internet as streaming on multiple devices, speed tests all running fine.
Have I clicked some setting on the Xbox setting or something?
Have turned it and router off etc

I know you said you’ve restarted your router, but have you tried unplugging your Xbox for a few minutes?

Just turned it off at the sockets, not actually unplugged.

I had issues before and the number one pointer that worked was to quit out of everything I had open. I don't mean just being on the dashboard, you have to press your xbox button then scroll down to any apps, games or settings that you've had open at any stage that day. When you highlight those games and press "start" you'll get an option menu and the bottom one is "quit".

That boosted my download speed like you wouldn't believe. I've had friends giving out about their speed while they've had COD open in the background and while playing a game of FIFA. You need to be doing nothing other than downloading to get the full effect.

Ok so went to update game today, nothing running in background that I can see and am getting the following speeds 500kbps.

Run a speed test and get the bottom pic attached.

All out of ideas now. Tried everything. Must be a setting i have clicked or something.

Cable connection fine, but not ideal as I have to run it from the attic downstairs

It's very unusual

I was having a similar issue for a week or two, tried everything but couldn't figure out what was wrong it. Still don't know what caused it. Since I've changed my router it's been perfect

Yeah shouldn't impact speed, but I've had some screwy things happen over the years with it and xbox.

The other thing I forgot to ask was where was the speed test run from? The xbox itself a phone or laptop etc? and do youtube or netflix chug or play fine?

Speed test done from Xbox.
YouTube, netflix, nowtv all work fine. Xbox is 3 years old roughly.

Long shot, as it's unlikely, but have you got Dynamic QoS activated on your router? That could be classifying your Xbox download as low priority, and killing the speed?

I don't have that router, so I'm not entirely sure if that'd cause it.

Can you not run a cable from the router itself, or are you saying that the router is in the attic? If so, and your xbox is ground floor, it's no wonder the speeds are that slow on wireless.
