When you type on the internet in capital letters it uses more bandwidth than normal letters as they are bigger, this is probably whats slowing down your game demos.

Other than that it could well be your ISP or have you got any torrents downloading or anything else?

If you dont know what torrents are then that wont be a problem :)
When you notice your PS3 downloads being slow try downloading a file on your laptop to see if it's also slow on there, my bet is that it will be.
Is your PS3 connected to your router wirelessly or by a cable?
My guess is that TalkTalk is the problem.

<chuckle> - Sorry, couldn't resist!

What kind of download speeds do you get on your laptop? Have you done a speed test on both?
