Re: [Cable] Youtube lags at night still, upgrade cache servers?

I'm now experiencing this issue as well. Getting 30/1 on speedtests, cannot stream YouTube at 720p.

Edit to add: Problem occurs using both Google DNS and TekSavvy DNS. No difference. Something is up.

Same here. I've got an Extreme circuit on a 4x4 bonded SB6120 on the Richmond Hill POI. In the AM I can watch 1080p content without any issues while at night it's miserable.

This can't be blamed on node congestion as switching to my backup Rogers Express circuit solved the problem.

I went to go test just now with some of the videos posted on page 4 and I was getting those buffering errors.

Ran a speedtest though, and I was getting only 5Mbit/s down on 28/1. Released/Renewed my DHCP address (in the router GUI. Power cycling the router will the same result)

Playing 1080p videos just fine now without buffering. I doubt this will help many since it seems there's some POIs out there that are heavily congested. But worth a try.
