Trust me.. I've been downloading since 6:30. I have a 10MB/s connection. This is beyond annoying.

I downloaded a few other things off the store and it was slow too. Then just tried downloading a video off the browser and it was at normal speed.
So, it seems the store is experiencing some issues. I wonder if some of their servers are in the northeast. With all the power outages if some of their servers are out that would put more traffic on the others and thus the lag. Its a possibility anyway.
Oh well, 264MB/6342MB and counting.

Kinda makes me wish the PSN was more like XBL in terms of paying for usage. Kinda.

take a look at your download and count per second when 1mb goes up. divide 1000 by the number of seconds you counted per 1mb it went up. If it took 5 seconds, then you're downloading at around 200kb/s
