silly question but were you doing the exact same thing to achieve those download speeds? ie: downloading the same file from the same source?

Incidentally, are you able to surf the internet on your PS3 as you would on a desktop? ie: you have access to a browser? I dont have a PS3 and am looking to get one.

Yes there is an internet browser included with the PS3Cool although the java compatibility is a bit suspect at times. Good enough to watch youtube on a big screen though.

I've also noticed speeds are slower on the PS3, 6mpbs down on laptop and desktop. and around 1.5-2mbps tops on the PS3

Put Linux on the PS3 and test again..

I would say its the PS3 OS or the PS3 Web browser that is slowing it down..

I never use the PS3 browser myself.. as have PC pluged into same LCD screen as PS3
