MBPS or "megabytes per second" is a measurement of how fast a broadband Internet connection can transfer information. A faster connection can support a higher megabytes-per-second transfer rate than a slower one. If you're looking to increase the Internet connection speed of your Sony PlayStation 3 you can do so by trying a few different things depending on your resources.
Things You'll Need
- Ethernet cable
Purchase an Ethernet cable from an electronics store and connect your PlayStation 3 directly to your modem. While a wireless connection may be more convenient, it is a naturally slower way to connect to the Internet due to things like signal interference and loss over distance. Ethernet cables provide a faster and more stable connection for online gaming with your PlayStation 3.
Upgrade to a new tier of Internet service within the type you are using. Most ISPs (Internet service providers) offer several speed tiers within a specific type. For example, a DSL connection may be offered in "Regular," "Fast" or "Fastest" speeds. Call your service provider and upgrade your connection to enable you to have a higher rate of connection on your PS3.
Upgrade to a completely new type of Internet connection for your PlayStation 3. In order of speed, commercially available Internet broadband connections start with DSL lines, then cable lines followed by fiber optic lines. If you have a cable Internet service in your home, upgrading to a fiber optic connection will greatly increase the speed that is provided to your PlayStation 3.
