100MB Wired Connection and Still Slow....

6 Replies 744 Views Created 24-07-2012

Hey, I am using Virgin Media 100MB Connection and Disabled Wireless and Connecting to PS3 Via Ethernet and for some reason Im getting 10 - 20MB (MAX) On most days I will get like 5 - 10 and It's kinda frustrating because I changed providers and choose virgin for its fast net and kinda lame on PS3...... When on PC Im getting 80 - 96MB so I dont think its the provider.

 

Please leave comments and tell me what you think thanks

Bud im on the same service as yourself.

I think the ps3 is capped at a certain speed i get half on my ps3 and its wired.
Even downloading from store is slow at times, as pc films can take 5 mins.

I know PS3 is capped mate but when I had the Virgin 60MB service a while back my downloads were going alot faster and now they seem to be slower than usual, I dont know if it has something to do with the router but if that was so I thought it would also effect my PC but fine so maybe...... I Will try contact Sony and maybe they can help out some way I dont know

The max upload that Sony gives is around 30Mbit so you will only get upto 30Mbit download speeds, its simple realy when you download something off the store your only connecting to 1 link not multiple links like you can on a PC this is why speeds change too, if you have a download manager on PC it finds multiple files that are the same and downloads from all so you get your full speed, PSN doesnt work like that.
