Sony Limiting European PlayStation Download Speeds to Ease Internet Traffic

Posted on: Mar 25, 2020 By smartlaunch in News and trends,

More players than ever before are logging on to services like Steam and PlayStation Plus in order to spend time with friends and strangers while still attempting to practice safe social distancing.

With so many players hitting the online gaming servers at once, some companies are having to take special precautions so that the game servers don’t become too overloaded.

It looks like Sony will be slowing down PlayStation game download speeds in Europe for the foreseeable future in order to make sure people continue to have access to online functions.

Sony isn’t the only company limiting speeds. Microsoft is also working to maintain Xbox Live during the coronavirus pandemic and might also announce a cap on download speeds. Other media providers like Netflix, Disney+, YouTube,  Amazon Prime, etc have already limited video quality.
