PSN downloads - Are they always ultra slow?

Dug out the PSP and updated to download FF7 to it.

Have paid my £7.99 and am downloading it on my pc via MediaGo - Being quoted 10 HOURS to download 1.29 GB - Seriously? Checked the download speed and last I checked it is downloading around 50k-65k, is this normal for PSN downloads? That's ridiculous...

Also, I'm not downloading anything else at the moment or doing anything online. Wowee, Xbox > Playstation.

Nope, I download at my max speed from the PSN

Madness... 4 hours to go, 30% complete... I can usually download at 1.6 MB/s maxed (and did after I paused the PSN DL to check). Ugh, what teh heckles.

Yeh they are always ultra slow.

I download at my maximum speed too.

Bah. No idea why it's so abnormally slow. Downloads are working fine on everything else, just this... Equally slow through the PSP.

On O2 and have just done a hard reset on the router. Screw it I'm going to bed.

PSN seems to vary. I have had days where it's cripplingly slow and days downloads fly down. Don't know why this happens though.
