The downloads are traffic managed but not to the point you should see any ill effect unless streaming/gaming at the same time

Official answer is probably no if you on the unlimited packages.
However I had a unexplained throughput issue (about 9-10% of line speed) which went away when I started using a proxy.  Thankfully the PS3 dash allows a proxy to be used.

Which DNS servers are you using?

I've tried my own DNS server (which is what everything else in the house uses), Google DNS and OpenDNS servers.
I saw online that some people had luck with it, but it's making no difference for me.

I have heard various people complain about this on a different site since a recent firmware upgrade.  I don't think its a Plusnet issue rather a Sony os issue.

Thanks, unfortunately it's been this way since I got it. Gone slightly slower on the latest firmware, but it's always been like this.
