Re: Horribly slow ps3 speeds, wired connection

Jan 11, 2013

listen up guys, and listen good. the ps3 speed test is not accurate .  use the web browser for speakeasy.net and use that or thebigpipe.net and those are accurate.  NEVER go buy the ps3 internal speed test.  if you notice, speedtests online test down first then up seperate. the ps3 internal tests both really fast thats not how it should be measured. thats why your getting a bad reading

 

if your still lagging, which you shouldnt be on NAT type 2(this is the one you want) then you need to call your provider and have them test your line for "NOISE" or "INGRESS" which is almost always the problem. they will fix it free.  its almost always the line/grid your on that messes up and remember that people sharing your connection will always lag you.

 

its so dumb that people complain here and NEVER bother to call their internet service provider. sony is right for giving you the ports. its your provider you need to be talking to, not here.

your connection speed is ALWAYS going to vary.

 

Espcially on the PS3 because you have to connect to Sony's servers FIRST before being able to do anything. As such, it will skew results.

I have a direct to modem wired connection with 4Mbps down and 2.4Mbps up. All my games like Call of Duty, Killzone, etc. work with these speeds. I recently bought Top Gun from the PSN store and the multiplayer didn't work, so PSN customer service used the speed line to deny me a refund. The game does not work properly and lots of people have said it, yet they still sell it, and blame the customer.

Blame the developer for delivering a broken game.... not Sony.

 

And almost all of Sony's Playstation Store purchases are final

guys like aries said the sites you are running test from and even the PS3's network connections test is never accurate. Bigpipe.net is accurate because it uses the right server that the PS3 utilizes. There has been a huge stigma going around about sony having horrible download and upload speeds because people are using speed test sites that aren't accurately capturing there ISP's speed on there console. I downloaded The LAST Of US in 30 mins, I downloaded movies and full games in under a hour, The PS3's DL and upload speeds are fine. What you should really be worried about as far as online gaming goes is how low your ping is.

Dunno about any of this, I have 150mbps connection and I am downloading at most 3mb/sec, it should be a lot higher.  regardless the whole 14mbps i get from that mock inconsole speedtest.
