Because it's a free service, whereas Xbox charge you a fee :)

It still shouldn't go that slow though. Usually if i download the updates via my computer, it goes pretty much at full speed. Funny thing is, if i download them via the ps3 directly, they go slower, much slower.

That's on the Limelight CDN, it should go at lightning speeds - except that NZ has no LLN caches. See, this is why you should use Akamai.




I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.

My download speeds are perfectly fine, downloaded the latest update (today) in about 8 minutes.

Maybe you have a slow ISP. 

Go Hawks!

You don't have a bittorrent client on your computer that is being throttled when something else needs the internet on the computer?  (The computer wouldn't be able to determine the requirement of the PS3 at the same time, so the bandwidth could be being sucked by the computer)

I've always used download manager on my PC to get the updates precisely because it's a lot faster than doing it on the PS3 itself. Has something changed? I haven't downloaded an update since before 3.21.

Edit: Currently pulling it down at 1+MB/s so it seems OK to me! :)

finally i've got it downloaded using google chrome, it took me 6 to 7 hours believe it or not...

bazzer, how do you use download manager to download ps3 update?

why my download is so slow? maybe (and very likely) because i'm using big time plan... if they make the plan so slow and useless on gaming and downloading, they might as well cancel it...

Yap, that's your problem. Big time is extremely slow for anything to do with gaming downloads.

I think it used to just work the same as any other download, but this last time I had to look at the page source to find the URL required.  "something something something .pup"
