    PS4 download speed is atrocious!!!!!!!!

    It took an entire day to download the FIFA demo. I am trying to download the NBA Live demo now, and it is going to take 59hrs. This is so much worse than the PS3 network.

    Are others seeing these terrible download speeds? And please do not say the servers are getting flooded. There are not enough PS4 consoles sold to create such a decline in speed.

    My speeds are usually in line with my capabilities. It was the same way with the PS3 though. Sometimes it would download at capacity, sometimes 66% slower.

    My PS3 downloads so much faster. It takes me an entire day to download a single damn demo on the PS4.

    That sucks. And frankly I'm glad that I'm not going 1st party DD (at this stage) until these things are ironed out.

    Are you using ethernet or wifi?

    Always ethernet


    The connection test shows the PS4 is getting 11.4Mbps, so I do not understand why the downloads are so damn slow.

    The servers suck.

    I had a similar issue when the 360 came out and I was downloading the quake 4 demo, took me ~6 hours when it should have been ~1.

    so... it was lightning quick for me (on launch night even)

    AND... FINALLY... you can DOWNLOAD MORE THAN 1 GAME AT A TIME SIMULTANEOUSLY.... downloaded resogun, warframe, blacklight, and contrast all at once... with BL being the biggest i believe, and taking roughly 15 min (i think it was like 3-4gb)

    Good thing I saw this. I'm not sure if this has to do with every thing but I know while downloading demos from the PS3 it'll go a lot slower if you're playing an online game. I'm guessing with the PS4 that shouldn't not happen?

    is there a speed test anywhere on the PS4? Or just using the broswer and a speed test website??

    For me my DL speeds seem to be way faster than on the PS3

    I used the speed test in the PS4 network settings. Same thing the PS3 used. Both consoles show the same speed, but my download speed sucks ass on the PS4.

    Sounds like all save the two of you are fine. Guess I'm reassured!

    Sure it's not local?

    PS4 download speed is atrocious!!!!!!!!

    It is a bit more complicated than just doing a speed test to say that Sony's servers or connections are the problem. Go on speedtest.net and select a few different hosts and I'm sure you will see a bit of disparity between different test sites. Anyone else on the internet may get fine speeds off the ones you get horrible results. The path your connection takes to get to one spot likely crosses many networks and any of them can be causing your issues. Generally companies like Sony host servers in many locations to help mitigate these issues, but it is impossible to have perfect connections everywhere at all times. It may be Sony but it is just as likely somewhere in between is causing your issue.

    My Xbox One is downloading just fine. I still have to test the PS4 again to make it was not just that day.

    Still... If your xbox one is downloading fine doesn't mean the issue is on Sony's side. Your ISP could be handing off to a congested network to get to where Sony's servers are located. I know the perception is that it is Sony and it may not be all that unreasonable to have that perception, but the internet is much more complicated than that.
