Download/upload slow Internet (network) speed PS4

Due to several complaints which came from our readers regarding slow download/upload Internet speed on PS4 we decided to discuss in this article on this topic taking in consideration this is a very common issue.

Network speed problems using PS4 can be download and/or upload related. Most common network speed issues when using a PlayStation4 device are upload problems. Specifically, most problem are when we have low upload bandwidth, users complain they have up to 1 Mbps upload speed no matter they use a wired or wireless connection. Other users which have over 100 Mbps subscriptions complain upload speeds are up to 5-6 Mbps.

Being a very common issue, according to the user comments from Playstation Community, an Internet service provider employee made several tests in the same environment using different devices. The only device which had network speed related problems was PS4. In that particular situation PS4 reps pointed the problem is on the service provider’s side although tests clearly indicated a PS4 problem.

In case we encounter network related speed issues using a PlayStation4 console, we can try as follows:

  • change MTU packets size; MTU packets (Maximum Transmission Unit) represents the maximum size of a PDU (Protocol Data Unit) which can be used during one single transaction at network level; some users managed to solve bandwidth problems by changing MTU size according to the MTU used by the service provider; therefore, we should contact our ISP to send us the MTU size we should configure on customer end on the PS4;
  • change DNS servers; even if receive IP settings automatically (DHCP), we can configure manually DNS servers; some users managed to solve the Internet speed related problems by changing DNS servers (for example, using Google DNS servers) instead of using the service provider DNS servers;
  • use a proxy app, for example CCProxy; We need to open CCProxy on our computer – Options – obtain the IP and port – on PS4 we configure the network related settings and when we have the Proxy option we use the IP address and port obtained with CCProxy;
