Many PSN users have taken to the PlayStation forums to express concern about consistently slow download speeds on PlayStation’s online service. Many users have started experiencing these issues within the last 2 weeks, but other report that PSN download speeds have always been slow for them.

Sony has responded to these claims saying that they are investigating the issues and plan to report back on them shortly.

We are aware of reports that some users are experiencing slower then usual download speeds from the PlayStation Store.

This has been reported to our network team for investigation. Please keep an eye on this thread for updates.

It is kind of funny that these issues with downloads on PSN come up right when Evolution Studios’ DriveClub finally released for free the PS Plus users. The game was initially supposed to be a PS Plus free title on the release of the PS4, but development issues and server problems delayed the game’s PS Plus release until a year and a half after the console’s release.

Are you experiencing slow downloads on your PS3, PS4, or PS Vita? Let us know in the comments and make sure to voice your concern on the PlayStation forums.
