Hello, I'm on a 50mb broadband package with Virgin Media based in the UK, London. My connections speeds on average are about 48mb+ download and 3-4mb+ upload at most times of the days including peak hours (which is good). However, when I connect via. LAN connection to my PS4 (at anytime - even non-peak time hours), I get about 17-25mb download+ which is about half or less of what I am supposed to get. But, when I use LAN on my desktop I get excellent speeds.
Are there any ways of improving my connection speeds or ways to get the most from my broadband for my PS4 just like my desktop does? I have already tried changing my DNS settings and MTU settings with the OpenDNS and Google DNS.
The speed test on the PlayStation is a bit unreliable and may not give accurate speeds. I know the xbox speed test routes via the US so the speeds are understandably slower. I'm not sure why the PS test is slower but it has been well documented.
