PS4 speeds worse than pc and phone

Go to solution Solved by Escapenz,

Sony speeds are always bad to there servers. When i had one i maybe got 100mbps up and down on my 1gbps but the my xbox would eat my connection up. So its not your connection its sony

Hello! I have been having this problem for a while now but it got pretty annoying. My pc speeds and mobile device speeds are much better than my ps4.

Most of the time, my phone and pc speeds are at 80-89mbps Download and 5mbps upload.

those are my ps4 speeds. There is such a big difference. What could be causing this? I kind of find it hard to believe that those are my actual speeds.

Best regards,

Nonkii

Geez. I never knew they were that bad. Although they used to be better. At around 20mbps upload sometimes or even up to 40 and now its this bad. I should give it some time since most isp's over here are having problems. Thanks!

@Levi90 Its also worth bearing in mind that the PS4 speed tester is not exactly reliable.  I've seen downloads go much faster than the speed test reported, although still WELL below what Xbox does.

Wired or wifi?  The original PS4 only had a 2.4g adapter.

Wifi. Its unplayable at this point. I get connection error on every game and get kicked out. I do have the 1st gen ps4. Its been better tho. It was always at 20mbps or even 50. I just can't find a solution. This may sound silly but can it be malware? I know there can be malware where it can make speeds slower but that is just almost impossible.

 

i normally play on my pc but I have other games on my ps4 that I enjoy wich I can't 

 

Edit 3: I noticed people are having problems and it's supposedly the server. I will keep you updated

As mentioned, the PS4 WiFi is utter garbage.

Whip out Wifi Analyzer on your phone and take a look at 2.4 g SSIDs from your neighbors.  There's a very high probability it's just interference from another network or multiple networks
