my PS3 has been having really bad download rates lately even though when i do a internet check it says i should be getting about 1.2Mg a second.
i rang sony and they gave me the ports to open and i managed to get onto my port website but know nothing about what to do next.
i rang my service provider as well virgin media but they sent me through to a company wanting £60 for a one off fix or £10 a month contract.
there must be an easier way, so any help would be great

you see this is what the port opening website looks like for virgin media (http://help.virginmedia.com/system/selfservice.con
but the information that sony gave me looks like this
port range 10070-10080
and i dont know what goes where and how to do it at all

Port forwarding or opening is not something you need to pay for and certainly not with a contract!!
You should contact your router manufacturer for assistance, which will be Netgear or Belkin with Virgin I think. They will be able to talk you through the process, also there may be someone here who have the same router as you and can help.
Unfortunately I cannot help with port forwarding due to the large number of makes and models.

Are they suggesting they send someone out to your property to do it for you? Again I think this is unnecessary.
The instructions that Virgin sent you explain the process quite well.
