Strange Download Problem

2 replies 150 views Edited May 2, 2014

Good Evening,

 

I am having trouble downloading software from the Playstation Store.

 

All cable connections are fine, the PS3 speed test says 20 Mbps download and 2-4 Mbps uploading.

 

When downloading a demo or game, the speed is somewhere around1 MB every 2-3 minutes.

 

Could this be a problem with my ISP? Is it possible that there is a problem with the HDD? If I switch the cable over to my 360, it downloads at a reasonable speed.

 

Streaming services seem to work just fine (Hulu+ and HBO Go).

 

Thank you all in advance for any help.

I followed the instructions on that blog and I'm still getting downloads slower than 1 mbps.

 

The PS3 and online speed tests both agree that my PS3 is downloading between 20-25 mbps.

 

***UPDATE***

 

As a last ditch, I tried to restart the same download via the PS Store and now I'm getting 20 Mbps. Thank you for the DMZ guide.

 

***UPDATE AGAIN***

 

Back to 3-5 minutes for 1 MB. Is this a problem with Verizon?
