Some readers have made us aware that AT&T customers are having download issues when pulling down some types of content on Sony's PlayStation Network. From what we hear, the problems started a couple of weeks ago. It seems that videos and patches are near impossible to pull down, with downloads either slowing to a crawl or completely stopping. The issue is the same for wired and wireless connections, and over several different types of network configurations.
Several AT&T and PSN users on Gamefaq's boards and YouTube are having the same problem, with just about all of the cases we've found saying that they are using firmware version 3.56. As you can see in the video above, downloads work fine on games and demos, but some videos and patches won't pull down.
Are you using AT&T for your internet connection? If so, are you having similar troubles on PSN? Let us know in the comments below.
