    Hi all,

    I'm wondering if there is a solution to download large background files through data (namely 3G or 4G).

    Currently when downloading these kinds of things (for instance an Xbox Video HD movie) I'm asked to switch to wifi "waiting for wifi" before itll download.

    Any solutions or one to request from Microsoft?

    Thanks,
    eXceeded

    You realise that you're sharing that data bandwidth with everyone else, don't you? People downloading huge files through the data connection has an effect on the speed of other people around you, so if you get more than a few people streaming HD data over the cell network, other people using the same network suffer slower connections.

    Mobile providers put these limits in place in order to help their customers get a consistent data connection.
