I started up my first Windows 365 Enterprise machine today only to be massively disappointed. I did not get anywhere near the touted 10Gbps down/ 4Gbps upload speeds. I'm getting the same bandwidth as the rest of my azure VM's. 

 

Numerous articles Microsoft touts those speeds such as this youtube video:

Windows 365, your Cloud PC | What it is, how it works, and how to set it up - YouTube

 

So is it just a configuration issue, those speeds are only available to Windows 365 Business (doesn't go through company Azure), or is Microsoft misleading?

 

Thanks,

There is nothing specific to Windows 365 with the network config.  I created a VNET in Azure West US 2 and I have peerings to East US and East Europe.  I installed the SpeedTest app from the Microsoft store on my Cloud PC.

 

I just ran the test again this morning and here were my results:

I reran the test using Windows 365 Business.  This is a 2 core 8 gig VM with clean install.  My Tenant is based in Washington, USA so this VM is likely located on the US West coast. Here are my results:

This is promising. I have all my public IP's set to Microsoft Network. I'm not sure what else could be limiting Windows 365 to only ~1GBps down/up.

 

Turns out our firewall was the limiting factor. Max throughput is 1GB.
