As I wrote above, I've got cable (RoadRunner T1.5), no router, a direct wired connection to my modem. On the other system I've downloaded comparable sized games easily within the time you specified, dare I mention my PC which is quicker still? If you're downloading it in 3.5 hours that's one hell of a feat I'd adore knowing. Everyone I know who'se got a PS3 has slow DL's.
To be fair to you I've got one of the older PS3s, a BW compatible model. I don't know if this is the reason or not. BTW I tend to do any DLing during the eves.
Here's my specs according to Speedtest.net. In fact here's the direct links:
I'll run the same test on the PS3 later. I keep being shoved into off-topicness... unreal.
that is slow nowadays. i have charter and they keep bumping up the speed. have to love it.. im running 28 dl about 1.2 upload. also have slim 250 so not sure if diff router. when i sarted the dl of me, it showd about 9 hours but about hour in, the speed really kicked in.
I ran the same test on the PS3 & got roughly the same results. It's a small thing in the scheme of things since I tend to get Hard copies whenever I can (yes I'm that old fashioned), but still...
Hopefully truly the end of the off-topicness
