Slow download speed

#1KefkaPalazzoPosted 2/12/2013 5:27:29 PM
I am trying to download the PSASBR update, and it is taking a long time, with speed fluctuating between a reasonable 85 minutes and 500 minutes. Any way to get it to move faster?

Also the last time I tried downloading it, I got a could not download error about 220 megs into the 850 meg download. Any way to prevent this?

The only way I've been able to optimize the Vitas downloads is when I have a strong connection and have the Vita plugged in using AC power.

So I should just do what I've been telling myself (and being very bad about actually doing), "just leave the damn thing alone and let it work. It'll be good tomorrow."

PSN sucks for download speed . . . sometimes. It applies to both my PS3 and Vita and it can vary between decent and turtle pace from time to time at random it seems and it's not my connection. I don't think there's anything you can do.

If you let the Vita go into sleep mode by itself it will continue to download but if you force it into sleep mode it won't btw.

This happened to me about 500 mb in. My internet isn't very fast, but it was downloading the PSASBR update at a steady rate. All of a sudden, with about 20 mins left, the ETA jumped up to ~500 mins.

Plug your Vita. It usually download stuff quite a lot faster that way.

And I've never had problem doeloading stuff on my Vita. My psp, ps3 pc wiiu and 3ds all have slower download speed somehoe (eeyup, even with the 10-20 mb games on the 3ds, i have problems!)
