This article will highlight some ways to increase your Xbox One's download speed. While your download speed usually depends on your ISP and the type of connection you have, there are some things you can do to troubleshoot and fix slow download speeds. After you've tested your network connection, it can sometimes help to close other games or apps, restart slow or frozen downloads, restart the Xbox One itself, or use a wired connection to your Internet router instead of Wi-Fi.
