Re: [BC] Horrendous YouTube performance

Sounds too me like you have been using too much bandwidth on youtube and shaw has decided to throttle you. You must watch a shit ton of youtube. I have dozens of reports of them doing it with netflix, but this is the first time I have heard of them doing it with youtube. I don't think its technically called throlling, they are doing something sneaky and different, probably so they can honestly claim its not throttling.

Shaw doesn't throttle downstream connections, none, no where.

It is even in their terms of service, and Shaw isn't stupid enough to violate their own terms when they have enough lawyers for customers.

That's just fucking bullshit. Their terms of service is a pile of lies and trash. I get throttled every time i try to leave p2p on for more than 10 hours, to the point where i can't even use the internet. I have seen it happen so many times. When i watch too much netflix they also throttle me so i can't get any decent kind of quality. $200 a month for internet that performs worse than @home did in 98. Go go capitalistic monopoles go.

This, unfortunately for our excited friend, is not accurate. Shaw doesn't throttle downloads.

Feel free to switch to Telus, by all means.

In his defence: He clearly loves the internet and wants it to be speedy. I encourage that.
