Hey guys and girls I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing very slow speeds on the playstation network. As a example I am downloading Star Wars force unleashed 2 I started the download at 1:30pm and it is only at 53% for a file that is about 15GB I know for a fact that it is not my Internet connection as I am on fibre with a 100mb down connection and have done speed tests today giving me a result of 95mb down 40mb up. I find this to be rather stink on Sonys behalf as I wanted to be playing this game now which I can't and I still have the wait to install the game and possibly download updates before I can play it arghh

I think Chris was suggesting that surely the PSN servers are local anyway so it should be downloading from a local source. At worst they'll be hosted in Australia is my guess.

As for your actual problem I can't help as my broadband is rubbish anyway so it's always slow for me. The thing that annoys me about PSN at the moment is how sluggish the PS Store is in general since the UI update a few months back.

Here's a big thing is your ps3 wireless or wired because when I had mine on wireless it was hellish slow 150Kbps up load and 1.1MBps download wired 1.6MBps upload download 7.2MBps downloaded AC revelations 6GB in one hour and 30 minutes

Also in my experience assigning static ip's seam to move things a bit quicker as well just a thought though

I found the same thing. I had to change my entire lounge around because some games just refuse to work with a wireless connection. I'm looking squarely at you Modern Warfare 2.
