Downloads from PS Store is extremely slow!

Downloads from the Playstation Store is extremely slow!
I've tried everything possible and nothing helps.

First, I tried with my wireless router (Linksys WRT300N) which is located about 12 feet from the PS3, so I get from 95%-99% signal.
I opened all the ports 10070-10080 TCP, 10070 UDP, and 6000-6999 UDP.  UPnP enabled.
Internet is working fine, Resistance online is working fine, but Downloading from PS store is extremely slow!
Downloading Lair Trailer 85mb and it takes about 1 hour.  Tried to download GT HD demo, and about 3 hours later, I was at 36%, so I cancelled it.

I thought there might be a problem with the wireless connection, so I tried plugging in the ethernet cable for a direct connection, but
the same thing happens, PS store is still slow.
Then I thought there might be a problem with the router, so I tried plugging in the cable modem directly to the PS3, and guess what?
Still extremely slow downloads from the PS store.

There is definitely something wrong with either the PS store or the PS3 itself.

I have a very fast connection 7 Mbps / 512 kbps on cable from Earthlink / Time Warner.

Does anybody out there have a solution?  I know there are a lot of people with slow downloads for the PS Store.

maybe your internet was just lagging?  I downloaded GT HD at my sister's house (she has cable) took me about 15 mins or less

Slow happens, it depends on how much network traffic there is on your service and how busy the server and the server's network is at the time that you're downloading.

As long as you seem to be downloading at normal speeds from other sites with your computer on the same network, it probably isn't a problem with your router settings, router or network.

I have a fast internet connection, 7 Mbps download and 512 kbps upload.
I just tried a speedtest on my computer and I get around 6000 kbps on Speedtest.net
I tried the speedtest on the PS3 and I get around 2500 kbps.
So, that's over 2 Mbps on the PS3 and that seems hardly slow, so my internet isn't slow or lagging.

I have been testing downloads from the PS Store, most notably the GT HD demo, for the past week.
I've tried it throughout the day, even 2 am in the morning, where there is virtually no internet traffic in my area
and I get the same results. 

So, I definitely know there's nothing wrong with my internet connection, since it's fast on my computer and
on the PS3 internet browser.

Same with me. But, I decided to take my modem and put it right next to the PS3, disconnect the splitter from the cable that the modem was attached to and then run the cable straight into the modem from the wall. It started going alot faster, then it only took 13 minutes to download NBA.

2. free server
3. lagging connection?
(4.)possibly overloaded

I don't think there is a solution. I don't believe the PS store has enough bandwith to meet supply ... thats what you get for free.  I don't believe all these people saying 10 - 15 min dl for these demos. Took me forever and I have a very fast connection. I have no problems dl large demos from xbl so I know its not on my end.
