The Playstation 4 has a software data cap, meaning the network speeds are capped at around 50 Mbps. Why is this? Is there anything we can do to fix it? Or at least make things better?

Everytime i turn on my ps4 it connects to the xfinity wifi 5ghz band and will run things but is super slow and low signal. After i reset the connection it goes back on the 2.4ghz and boosts the signal by 50% + what it was on 5ghz but i am unable to play any games because its too laggy and unplayable. 90% wifi connection and cant even play a single game because i cant hardwire. It Just started out of the blue one day and has been like this for months. Another week or so and ill probably be selling it for an xbox as i cant do anything online with the ps4 at 90%+ signal so idk what to do ive literaly tried everything multiple times. Ive been having to play my ps3 which only gets 60% signal and nothing lags. So triggered
My PS4 speeds have seemed off for a long time, though not as far back as this video. I'd say it hit the fan sometime early last year. I had been PC Gaming for the most part for the better part of 9 months prior to the noice in speeds, leaving my PS4 alone for that time so it went unnoticed for quite some time. However when I finally did come back to PS4, it was awful. A lot of the time, my connection wasn't even strong enough to connect with the PSN, let alone play any games online...and I don't have weak internet. I have 60 Mbps down and about 6 Mbps up. The only way I even managed to connect sometimes was a hardwire connection. I don't understand why it was so bad all of a sudden. Before I got my PC a few months prior, I mainly used PS4 and I managed to play with absolutely no hiccups, and my PC is hardwired, not even possessing a WiFi receiver so I doubt it has a part in all of this. Still to this day I have issues connecting to PSN, usually getting an error that says something along the lines of "Check your internet connection". If I hadn't already dumped so much money into it, I would just get rid of the damn thing. PC has been so much better
This shit pisses me off. I have "good" internet according to at&t and I did the same test you did with your phone and my phone is saying so much more. Another issue is that I play ubisoft games, so im kinda shooting myself in the foot there with their potatoe servers
You know what? An agent from my isp said that even PS4 Pro doesn't matter. Sure it's 5Ghz but. Upload speed is still 12mpbs max and 30mpbs download speed or some shit. But GeekSquad told me to do a speedtest from my cell on google and I got 22mpbs download, 11mpbs upload. My videotron package is 30mpbs download, 12 mpbs upload.
But... ever since 4 weeks ago. My upload speed has been at the worse it's ever been. Sure I lagged a few times here and there in the months I had my PS4. Mostly recently but now... it's usually at 7mpbs or all the way to kpbs... For 4 days I've been calling playstation and videotron but... they never truly solved the issue. ... So I'm starting to think that GeekSquad is right and that the issue is my PS4 Slim itself... so maybe I should I don't know, bring it somewhere to get refurbished or get a new one cause wtf... I can't play online anymore. It fucking lags too much.
SO! I'm wondering now, how the fuck I can manually put a better software data cap inside my PS4 damn it!
I cant even play online. Just did this and got 100kbps down and 10 kbps up more. Currently at 330kbps down and 50 kbps up but im getting 15mbps down and 7 mbps up on my phone. My modem says im getting 45mbps to my ps4. This is absolute bullshit.
Another video gave all the same info except he told me to use the exact same IP as my PC. That worked for about 3 seconds then stopped. Then I found your video talking about just change my IP address to whatever high number, so I changed it to the 116 that you used. My 14gb SF5 update went from 12 hours to 23 minutes. It's been 13 minutes without automatically stopping so it's safe to say that your method definitely works. After years of dreading downloading on my PS4, it's finally on par with my XB1. Thanks for the video.
Ok if anybody sees this and understands it please answer keeping in mind that I have NO IDEA what bandwidth or whatever is. I just want to be able to PLAY MY FUCKING "500+" GAMES!! So anyway, at first my ps now subscription was working fine and I finished a few games. Now, whenever I try to play a ps now game, it says I need to shut down whatever is eating up my bandwidth. I've tried, but I can't find what it wants me to shut down apparently. Why is this happening? What do I do?
Basically there are 1024 kilobytes (kbs) in a megabyte (Mbs)
If your upload or download speed on your PS4 is shown in Kbs then this is very slow.
Mine for example is 81.7 Mbs Download and 8.4 Mbs Upload with a wired connection on my PS4
(this speed obviously varies)
The upload speed is the important one for gaming!!!
Hope this helped in some way.
ok guys i tried it step for step and ended getting my internet connection failing and refusing to come back on-before this i was getting around 553.56ghz .. and i just retried setting up the internet by easy and automatic choices on wi-fi(Since i wasnt connected to LAN cable) and it was restored, and i was reconnected( thankfully) and now im getting a higher download speed of 1.2 mgz ...Even though its slow compared to what others are used to.. lol its still better and i didnt managed to fuck my PS4 up frm ever being able to connect by wi-fi again..(Thank you god)
