    It's not broken. The speed test Microsoft uses connects to XBOX live to run speed test to those servers. Since Cox is throttling download and upload speeds to specific gaming endpoint servers you will get poor gaming performance. This has been the cases since net neutrality was repealed in 2018.

    The other speed tests done through the browser isn't connecting to a gaming servers hence proper upload and download speeds.

    Same thing happens to me but when I use the browser it shows my Max upload speed around 30 gbps and that's what I pay for

    When I do it on the browser it 900/35. But xbl is almost uplayable. 

  • Have you had any luck getting his fixed? I have the SAME EXACT PROBLEM. It is only with my xbox, and only affecting the upload... I am getting 300+ download and 1-4 upload... That is wireless, wired to the router and even wired directly to the modem.

    All other devices are connecting fine, but this problem affects the multiplayer games online... COX PLEASE HELP. This is apparently a common problem (just google "xbox one upload cox" and you see a long list of reported issues starting back in Nov 2018.

    What has happened COX? I used to be very proud of my internet and happy with your service.. Lately, it has been terrible.
