BT undersubscribed pipes may be faster but third party Pipes remain as random in speed as ever.
If the Patch was to move a game to new servers and the Game is now running on different servers it would make sense for the publisher to reduce the old servers bandwidth and pay for the new server access instead.

Then its BTs third party ISPs Pipe to Sonys PSN Store IP for your area being over loaded.
Won't take 2 hours for me to download 160MB. Even with a traffic shaped VM connection with its new routing errors of the New packet data inspection system they have added...
Edit = just pasted 225MB as typed.

Had the problem myself before small downloads taking ages. I believe the cause was a failed game install corrupting the OS.
Cured the problem by running the safe mode operation twice option 3 restore file system and option 4 rebuild database. http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation
After the second run i had a 4.5GB corrupted file i could delete and everything was back to normal.

Well it would seem that trying that had no effect unfortunately. If anything things seem to be going even slwoer this morning, I timed the download, and it took 20 secs to download 1Mb! The connection test is now showing a connection speed of a couple of hundred kbps, a drastic difference to what I usually get. Even during peak times when the connection was good it has never been this bad. This is starting to get on my nerves now
Just timed how long 1mb took again, and it took over 1 minute!!
I really hope it isnt something to do with the console itself, as I really dont have the money at the moment.

I also have BTHH 3, with infinty. I have 2 wireless PS3's. Both work fine when both are connected. But my PS3, which is a slim, is at least 2 floors away from the router. While my Dad's PS3 which is FAT is about 15 feet away from the router.
Yet the Slim gets the best connection & download speeds. I can easily download 1GB in about 15 minutes. Keep in mind, I'm 2 floors from the router, were my the fat PS3 is only a few feet away with no walls in the way.
Even when I'm not online, his download speeds are slow. I've always just blamed it on that maybe the wifi chip in the fat PS3 was worse than the slim.
I tried everything to, port forwarding,DMZ. The only that that worked was a Ethernet cable, but it's just not convenient to run a cable around the house.

Well unless the wireless chip has decided to conk out in the 2 weeks where i didnt use it, I doubt that that is the cause (at least I hope it isn't) When I was at my uni house a few months back me and my housemate had PS3s, but he had a slim and his always downloaded faster than mine, not by much though, we were both downloading at pretty reasonable speeds.
Now I have found some corrupt data, 4 infact, and have deleted 3 but get stuck on downloading the 4th. Im just letting it sit at the moment and see if it's just taking its sweet time about it. For some reason after restoring the file system it took the corrupt data from where it was in the game data utility section, and placed where I couldn't see it with the way I had things organised. I'm using folder view at the moment, and there was no corrupt data visble in any of the folders. But as soon as I got rid of the folders, the corrupt data appeared.
Also decided I might by a cheap small HDD slim, and put in the new 500gb drive I have just bought for my fat. Or maybe buy a preowned one. Does anyone know if it is advisable to buy a preowned one? And does anyone know what kind of trade in prices GAME or HMV (if they take consoles) are offering for a 80gb fat?
