It is extremely frustrating when your PS4 and PSN download speeds are literally crawling. You eagerly wait for updates to finish downloading so you can play your favorite games, but then get confronted with the reality that the estimated time for completion will take several more hours. By some miracle, there is a quick and easy solution for this problem that has been proven to work according to huge amounts of comments on the internet.
The download speed solution involves a simple four-step process that would only take a couple of minutes. The end result is a noticeably faster download speed as the process can basically enhance the way your gaming software grab all the data. All you need are a proxy server software, a computer, and your game device and computer running on the same network.
According to the Forbes, here are what you need to do to solve slow download speeds of your PS4 and PSN. First, download and install a proxy server on your computer, which you can get for Windows computers. Next, launch the proxy server then get its IP and port number from the HTTP port listing.

This solution actually works compared to Googling and tinkering with the router and internet settings. According to the Forbes writer, downloading Mass Effect: Andromeda's 1.9 GB update went from three hours to three minutes after the fix.
