In order to temporarily fix the issue, you can pause your download and start it again. Here is what ActiVision has to say about the slow speeds:

Due to the high volume of players accessing Sony’s network, you may experience slow downloads due to the size of the download, as well as your region and the speed of your Internet connection. If your Internet connection’s download speed is 10 MB, the download can take up to 3 and a half hours. On a 25 MB connection, the download can take an hour and 15 minutes. On a 50 MB connection, the download can take up to an hour.
