said by Pampers:This isn't one specific ISP issue as far as i can tell. In my house i have access to TSI DSL & Rogers Cable and i just helped my neighbour last night with something and he's on Bell directly. All 3 ISP's have these same problems with youtube.
I am currently on the old Bell DSL 5 MBit unlimited plan that was grandfathered in. I don't get any throttling of torrents or anything else.
However, I'm a 'Youtube head'. I get buffering and hickups. I can no stream in HD most of the time unless I buffer. It's an ongoing frustration.
Youtube reports that I'm well below my ISP and even city at 4.66 MBits average. I read this is NOT enough to stream in most situations. It also lets me know that Bell isn't throttling me.
My bill is $80 total a month for dry loop DSL including taxes etc.
I was curious what others would advise me to do.
