You're never going to get full speed through WiFi, regardless of the device. Even a 5Ghz connection isn't going to achieve the full effect.

The only way to get full advertised speed and low latency is via ethernet.

Even plugged in, PS4 is slower than other devices.

Me personally, I have a WiFi extender and PS4 plugged into that.


While it is definitely true that PS4 is has a poorer connection than, say, a laptop, or even an Xbox, the point still stands.

A WiFi extender also doesn't really cut out the WiFi connection. It's a middleman. To get closest to the speeds you pay for, you're going to have to hardwire directly into the router or modem. This has always been the case. (Though, unfortunately, this is obviously not feasible in all home setups.)

Sony isn't going to match your download speed, their infrastructure isn't as strong as ms or steam

The internet speed on a ps4 is strangled. You'll never get the speeds you're meant to get, even with an ethernet cable. It's just how the online system is on a ps4.
You can't spell over reacting without ovary.

Not just in ps4.

Most internet providers say "up to" in their speeds. They are never guaranteed.

Nobody does but if you read the service agreements you're given it even says in there "our services are not guaranteed to work."

I ordered high speed internet from my cable company. They gave me a new modem and router, but as I checked my internet speed on my ps4 pro it's capped at 117 mbps? Why? I'm supposed to have 300 mbps!


Because there are millions of people online!
You think you are better becausecyou have a faster connection?

Do you just go into restraunt s & expect an immediate seat?
Do you go to vegas & rent a Lamborghini with the intention of approaching 200mph on the strip?

The PS4's speed test is highly inaccurate, it will almost always report slower than what you actually get, especially if you're wired. I made multiple test reports and it floats anywhere from 40mbps to 80mbps. Just download some large game and see how many megs per second it's actually getting.

I have 100mbps internet, but actually get about 120mbps when downloading from PSN. I see the numbers move at 14-15megs per second.

I'm wired to my PS4 Pro. Wireless will always be slower due to wireless security encryption.

Also, if you have an original PS4 model, it has a crappy LAN card in it compared to a slim or pro. The OG's will always be slower.

Then there's the fact that PSN will speed up and slow down based on their server load.
I play games, not count frames. Just make the games fun to play again, like they used to be in previous gens.
