Could Verizon be throttling DSLX's youtube access?

I'm having a pretty chitty time with youtube today. Then I found out that the Verizon people at the Fios Forum are also struggling, and that it is normal for them apparently.

Could it be that Verizon is throttling me even though I'm a DSLX subscriber?

I don't know FairPoint but the other ones are cable companies that don't want youtube or want money from google. Is DSLX part of this group?

Anyway check this page »mitchribar.com/2013/02/how-to-st···s-guide/ it fixed it for me.

Ops! Just found out that Google is the culprit. But why?

CenturyLink is not cable but DSL. Fairpoint is not cable either. As well as Vz not being cable.

CenturyLink, FairPoint, and U-verse (AT&T) are all DSL; except for the 5% of U-verse which is FTTH. Verizon is, like AT&T, a mix of DSL and fiber.
