    Getting Rubbish Download Speeds Through PS4

    Is anyone else with a PS4 getting awful connection speeds when they run the 'Test Internet Connection' test on the PS4?

    Mine is connected via ethernet cable, it's within spitting distance of the router so it can't be degradation from distance or anything? My PC is connected via Ethernet cable roughly the same distance away again.

    PS4: 16Mbps
    PC: 30+Mbps

    HOW AM I LOSING SO MUCH SPEED TO THE PS4?

    PS4 is estimating to take 3hours to download 5GB of BF4 DLC. My PC download 14GB in just over an hour the other night.......

    What's going on?!

    I have always had very poor rates through the PSN with the PS3 to be honest, normally when I mentioned it the SDL (Sony Defence League) would claim its my net connection....

    To be fair I guess it may be a common isp but I have never got my PS3 to max out my net yet.

    Yeah I cant wait. Not sure if there is much you can do with PSN, I figured it would be better now its all paid for by PSN+ but it may be a glitch, have other downloads been faster?

    Sorry @ZeroHour, didn't spot your response. In terms of downloads from PSN since my upgrade to fibre, no. Maybe a slight improvement as my speeds have gone from about 1Mbps to 30+ but no where near what it should be really. The best I've got through the PS4 is 22Mbps... And that lasted for about 2mins!! xD Getting an average of about 16Mbps download from it, shame on you Sony.

    I've always assumed PSN is so slow because of the huge load on it due to it being free. Now that you have to pay for it (on PS4, it's still free on PS3 AFAIK) I think it will improve over time as less and less people switch on their PS3s... all assumption mind you, no data to back it up!

    I'm still downloading this [click to embiggen]... 2 days later. Well, the DCUO update file. I cancelled it so the core game could download at full speed... I didn't know the update was needed to actually use it.
