I also have this problem. I can play online without any lag, though.

I noticed when your playing online your download pretty much stops. you have to leave your ps3 running for hours to complete

Re: Downloads from PS Store is extremely slow!

Apr 13, 2010

Hi guys,

 

I had this same issue - downloading a HD Rental i'd purchased was suggesting at least 10 hours of download time. I have a 20mbit cable connection in the UK, so realistically I should be getting around 2mb down a second.

 

I've just changed the PS3 to be plugged in to my router by Ethernet cable and I'm now getting 1mbps down - not perfect, but 8 times faster than before.

 

Hope this helps

Yea, there isn't a simple answer to this. Way I see it, theres 6 things to consider.

 

1. Your connection from your PS3 to your modem. (Router config, wireless, someone else using bandwidth)

2. Your connection quality between your modem and your ISP. (Modem signal levles, service tier,distance from server,node congestion,etc)

3. The quality of your ISP (Traffic managment, bandwidth on the trunk lines, latency issues, etc)

4. The connection between your ISP and the service providers PSN purchases.(where the nearest connection is, it's capacity Vs use, maintence and network problems)

5. The connection from that provider and the PSN content servers. (Rerouted traffic, limited abilitity, etc)

6. The current load on the content itself. (How many are downloading, using, or streaming it)

 

You can only really control the first two factors, and even some of 2 is unavoidable. Also, the chain is as strong as the weakest link. If the bottleneck is at 3 or 4, it doesn't matter if you pay 70$ for the best internet tier. Also doesn't matter if you have a 250$ router with every setting perfect. Now, if you get 1 and 2 nailed down, and then pick the best ISP for 3 and 4...and if PSN got pay to play (that help alot with 4, 5, and 6) then alot of these problems willl go away. Just don't think it's simple.

I'm getting ridiculously slow downloads (and connections to the Playstation Store generally).  It's not my internet conection, we get around 16Mbps.  We never have any problems streaming high definition fillms in 1080p on the Apple TV - at any time of the day (usually during peak time in the evening).  We pay for a premium broadband package which guarantees not to limit bandwidth.

 

For the first 20 minutes of downloading an 11GB game from Sony this evening it managed to download 20MB.
