How to speed up your GTA Online update speed

When the downloads are slow then you know where to go. To your router, to turn it off and then turn it on again about 30 seconds later. It's a classic, so it's a good starting point.

Next up, make sure everything else that is downloading is paused. Often you'll have something else downloading, which can split your speeds and really hamper what you care about.
