All PS3s run at the exact same speed, and they don't get slower as they get older. It doesn't matter what your Internet speed is rated at. Are you streaming video or downloading large files, to any other device in the home, at the same time as the PSN download? That could do it. There could also be a hardware problem with your hard drive.
