I hope someone can help me with what is a very frustrating issue. My Ps4 is having some serious problems getting any decent speeds. I have done the internal speed test on the Ps4, with download speeds averaging at 12MB download and 3.5MB Upload on wireless. I have a 50MB connection so these low speeds are either the result of throttling or poor virgin speeds. This gives serious issues when gaming, i am kicked out of parties even when I am hosting, I experience so much lag that games are unplayable.
To alleviate the problem I have tried using a wired connection via home plugs, unfortunately this gives me even lower speeds. So we are looking at about 10MB Download and 2MB upload. I have used thehttp://testmy.net/multithread site and this just confirms that I have a very slow speed. Its exact words are that i have 10% of the speed I should be having.
Basically what am I missing? Should I port forward? Change DNS? any advice is much appreciated
I feel your pain. Its terrible. I really cant figure it out. I have been trying to move the router around my house thinking that placement maybe a problem, but again marginal issues. I think there are some throttling issues going on.
My friend who is on Talk talk next door is on a lower tariff than me but gets a better connection!
Its the PS4 NIC / Sony backend that's the problem. Always have been.
