Is it just me, or does Microsoft simply tank download speeds when you're not on gold or the game is more than 6 months old?

I ask because I've picked up Forza Horizon 4 as I missed it, and it's downloading the 77 odd GB at a simply PAINFUL 1Mbps.

System updates all go at 10+Mbps (about the max my internet can handle) and even when I got horizon 3 I had gold and it went slowly, but not stupidly slowly.

The firmware and store and Blu-ray software and everything else on the system finished updating in half a second... But this game has been downloading for 3 fucking days and I still have 20GB to go...

I ask because I suspect if I was to buy Horizon 5, the download speeds would be at least 20 times faster than this.
