Playstation 3 internet speed question

Some background: My internet is 150 Mbps down and 15 Mbps up. I have the PS3 hooked up wired to the router and I get 10 Mbps down, 1 Mbps up. It's the latest PS3 model.

My PS4 is hooked up wired as well and it gets between 130-150 Mbps down, 10 Mbps up. I get similar speeds from my phone through wifi, as does my wife with her phone.

My question is; is there a way to improve the PS3's speed? Is it sucky cause it's older hardware? Any suggestions? Thanks.

Didn't work as in same speeds, or a very minor improvement?

Hooking up the PS3 wired is almost the same as PS4, the tech doesn't differ a lot.

Ok that's strange, I can only think of 2 scenarios;

1. The PS3's network chip is faulty (try wireless, I know its slower, but its still faster than 10Mbps down and 1Mbps up).

2. The PS3 isn't forwarding its own ports on the router, set it up manually. TCP: 80, 443, 3478, 3479, 3480, 5223, 8080 and UDP: 3478, 3479.

Setup port triggering on your router, so that when the PS3's MAC address connects, those specific ports are automatically forwarded.
