isn't google the fastest internet speed provider @ 1000MB/s aka 1GB?


Google has 1Gbps. Not 1GBps.
1Gbps is roughly 128MB/s.

16GB is possible, but 16GiB is another story!


Would that be Gigabyte and Gigabit?


GiB is Gibibyte.

I'm sure you knew he was full of it but here's a post anyways.

Complete and utter bs to be able to download a game that fast. The ethernet port (physical) on the consoles can only handle 1 gigabit which is 125 Megabytes per second. Wireless is approaching that in tech but afaik, the wireless chipset in the consoles is basically rated for N or 300-500mb/s or ~ 40-60 MB per second. Even if you could access that much bandwidth speed, nothing out right now on consumer electronics can handle it and all that extra capability would just go to waste.

I just spoke to somebody who claims to have "Business Class Internet speeds of 16GB"
To my knowledge this is either pure B*** or he really does have these speeds, claiming to have downloaded a 6gb game in 3 seconds on his xbox one.

Has anybody else hear of insanely high speeds like this?


6 GB can literally not transfer over an ethernet cable in 3 seconds. Even if you had the fastest possible everything, you could literally not download a 6 GB game in 3 seconds, period.

you didnt know the xbox one has a RAID of SSD's facilitating a 2GBPS write speed to the harddrive?


SATA 2.5 500GB 5200rpm Drive. Means its a slow POS, even if you put a SSD in the Xbone, its slow interface wouldn't be able to take advantage of it

this is actually interesting, wonder what price we'd have to pay for speeds like that


Did you read the comments lmao?

186gb download speed - Give Singapore a few months and they'll have that speed up and running for basic users for a monthly fee of about $39.99. Next Korea will do the same thing. We are so far behind the times in speed vs cost. Keep on Occupying

Genius xD


We are behind, but that's really a logistics thing. The US being so large makes the infrastructure required for those kinds of speeds very expensive.

Thankyou for the detailed answer. I actually didn't know the limitations of the xbox one until this thread.
