European Gamers Report Slow Download Speeds On PS Store

For whatever reason, PSN downloads appear to be slower than normal in Europe.

After numerous reports of lengthy download times, Sony has acknowledged the issue and are starting to investigate.

"We are aware of reports that some users are experiencing slower than usual download speeds from the PlayStation Store. This has been reported to our network team for investigation. Please keep an eye on this thread for updates."

This could be happening in other regions as well. I've seen some oddly slow download times on my side, too; the file will start off saying 99 hours (which of course isn't right) and even though it corrects itself as time goes on, it still occasionally takes an inordinate amount of time.

These speeds are usually fast; I have no trouble downloading from the PSN most of the time. That's why I was a little surprised to see it last week. Any slowness on your end?

Took nearly 24hrs to download the 15GB update for Elder Scrolls Online. I've a solid 125mb connection. It's done now but I'll have to do it all again next week when I swap out my 500GB HDD to my new 2TB drive once it arrives.

I've always thought PSN downloads are snails-paced as it was... experiencing even slower times than normal? That would suck.

Honestly, all consoles need to recognize the data the new generation requires now. They've got to get servers that upload info to us much much faster. What's the point in having a modern, high speed connection if you can never download anything at those speeds?

Nevermind that, just getting the store to load up on PS3 still takes ten minutes.

I have experienced that, but I thought the problem was with my connection
