In a PlayStation Blog post, the measure was originally used to ease European servers earlier in March until the same steps were taken after seeing increased traffic in the U.S.

It’s currently unknown if PlayStation owners in Canada are affected by the slower download times throttled in other regions. Past the updates and DLC, players will, fortunately, experience the same as usual speeds in online matches and Battle Royale sessions.
