Windows 10 Download Speed is very slow

New Contributor
Although there is no internet connection speed issue on other mobile devices and computers connected to the same modem, the internet download speed is 2 Mbps and the upload speed is 9 Mbps on my computer. Both Windows 10 Pro and MacOS are installed on the same computer. When I switch to MacOS, the internet download speed is 75Mbps as it should be. I've tried the most common solutions suggested on Microsoft's site and other sites on the subject. None of them worked out. I reinstalled Windows 10 by protecting the files and programs on my computer, but there was no solution. I also shut down all non-Windows applications and services that started automatically when the computer was booted, again, there was no solution. I tried 7-8 more actions without any solution. My computer did not have such a problem 2 weeks ago. It started suddenly.
Windows 10 Pro was upgraded recently to version 1909. Even though, I'm not sure I suspect this might be the problem.
Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I have gone through the list of troubleshooting on that link. However, none of them worked. I'm adding a log file here in case it may show any sign of failure and further suggestions. The only thing I noticed is:

@nedim34I suspect this might be something related to this:


Some more details about the issue:

I run Windows 10 on Mac Pro, where I also have MacOS.

I installed the recent updates on Windows 10 in early February 2020, but it didn't help.

Weird enough, I could connect to some Wifi modems with very slow connection (i.e. 2Mbps even though the real internet speed is 75Mbps) and could not connect to some others at all.


Result: I could not find a solution. Sadly, I had to format everything and start from scratch. Everything seems fine now, but lots of lost time.


P.S.: I forgot my former login credentials. So, I had to create another one.

Windows claims they have optimized downloads for windows and Xbox gaming app... although if you've ever sat and watched a 250 gb download, while watching your RX readings, you would know that they seem to have just changed what the computer registers as the download speed. Cfos internet shaping and traffic performance tool shows that I'm only receiving 8.6 mb/s and the download center in the play store shows 60 mb/s... i feel as if we're all being lied to. @nedim34 


Try update your network driver card and make sure report this issue through Feedback Hub app.

Are you experiencing performance issue when browsing websites too or are you only seeing slow performance when you run speed test?

I'm on feature update 20H2, I have regularly tried updating network driver card, flushing DNS, rebooting network, opening every port possible, setting a reserved ip address and even throttling everyone else on my network.


In this case, report this issue using Feedback Hub app like I mentioned earlier.


Please advise how to amend this annoying issue on my MacBook Pro.

I have windows 10 and up to date iso

over it!


As I mentioned, this issue is not reproduce in all devices , therefore submit a Bug report in Feedback Hub app , so Windows team could investigate the issue.
