    Download an app from Amazon. (Any free app, just to download an app.) is that also slow? If Amazon is faster, your ISP has a terrible path to the Play server. Talk to their tech support people. (The same problem could be causing problems with Youtube.)

    I often find that Play Store downloads can be rather slow as well, maybe 30k-80k on WiFi. Likely due to the country I'm in.

    OP, you're in Canada? Is your ISP or carrier Rogers by any chance? It's just that I've heard stories that they might be throttling certain things, like Skype and Youtube. I know in the past some people using Skype had a hard time with Rogers. This was on the TWiT podcasts. I believe that Rogers can be a monopoly in some parts of Canada, like if you want internet service you have to go to Rogers.

    They can be slow at times, but Wife's Moto G seems faster than the N5!

    Eh? How does that work?

    My Google Playstore downloads are superfast on my Nexus 5 and 7.
