    psn getting faster?

    anybody noticed that downloads take less time than they did before? i just downloaded 2.5 gb of demos in a little over an hour when a few months ago it would have taken 4 or 5 hours, nothing changed with my internet connection, just wondering if anyone else has experienced a noticeable speed increase in their downloads

    It varies for me. Either it's a lot faster, or it's slower than molasses going uphill. Right now, It's moving pretty fast.

    I have also been downloading things quicker on my PSN but I don't know if it's PSN or maybe my internet provider improving without telling (Internet provided as in the ones who provide it or my mother who pays for it.... 17 ftw.
    Also time of day affects it a lot (5AM I get about 5GB an hour, 5PM 500MB an hour

    i usually download in the morning and noticed it going faster maybe a few weeks ago, wasnt there a firmware update a while back? maybe that sped some things up?

    What demos were you dling and at what times? But to answer your question, no. The only time my dl is ever slow is the first few hours the PSN store has been updated, and I'm dling something everyone else is... but it's barely slower. I'll still rock out 1gb in less than 10minutes at the slowest times.

    just did the new demos this morning, dragons dogma, walking dead, and ninja gaiden 3, my internet isnt as fast as it could be, dont really feel like paying more for something i dont use frequently, a few months ago i would have expected those 3 demos to take several hours, maybe about 600mb in an hour, this morning was 2.5 gb in a little over an hour

    I've experienced the same thing but i reckon it's because our Internet Providers are always improving their services.

    I thought it was kinda faster and more responsive than normal. maybe just less traffic when you were on downloading perhaps which could be a bad ssign of less people online .

    OR just your net improved without you knowing. Do a speed test and compare to what it used to be if remember one.

    You've probably just caught it at a good time, if they had actually improved it so I can get my full download speed I'd be rather pleased

    Never had anything downloaded slowly. Uncharted 2 demo took only about 4 minutes to get, IIRC. The magic of optical internet.

    I normally have fairly fast dl speeds through PSN except for right after the store updates. But Dragon's Dogma demo did download faster than normal last night.

    Last night it was über slow, this morning it was faster than usual.

    But it must have been my connection trolling around as always.
