For the most part, it seems the networks are still holding up, even if they have slowed down a bit for some, and it seems that Sony wants to do its part. In an article on the PlayStation blog, Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO Jim Ryan announced that in the United States he would slow download speeds to PlayStation.
Before that, Sony made the decision to slow download speeds in Europe, and it looks like these practices will also be applied in the United States. “Starting today, we will be taking similar steps in the United States and will continue to take appropriate steps to do our part to ensure the stability of the Internet as this unprecedented situation continues to evolve. We are grateful for the role we play in helping to create a sense of community and entertainment in these very difficult times. “
Sony’s move is along the same lines as other entertainment companies, such as Netflix and YouTube, which will both decrease the quality of their video streams to help reduce the bandwidth of ISPs.
