Incremental software updates can be pretty dull. Usually the changes are barely noticeable or simply staging things for a bigger more exciting update later. The latest software update for the Xbox One however, has a very welcomed improvement that will be very noticeable.
Waiting hours for a game to download is a problem for many gamers who spurned physical media. This is an issue on the PS4 and Xbox One, but it feels a lot more pronounced on the later. The latest software update however, for the Xbox One can boost download speeds from 40% to 80%. That’s nothing to sneeze at.
Of course, your download speed can be impacted by your own home network contention or if you have a crap ISP. Also, if you’re playing a game online, download speeds can be slower as the console will prioritize gameplay over downloads.
