Note Bandwidth is the amount of information that can be transferred over your Internet connection at one time.
You can also try temporarily disconnecting or turning off devices that are connected to your home network.

Solution 4: Delete and reinstall the game
If you’re trying to download new content for a game, you might be able to fix this problem by deleting the game for which you’re trying to download the new content, reinstalling the game, and then downloading the content again.
Note When you delete a game, the game and saved games are deleted. We recommend that you copy your saved games to a USB flash drive before deleting the game itself. That way, you can copy the saved game information back to your console after you delete and reinstall the game. For information on how to copy content to another storage device, see Copy, move, or delete Xbox saved games, profiles and avatar items.
