Re: [AB] Youtube.com appears to be throttled

The DNS and the peering have nothing to do with it. It's YouTube screwing around with their website, servers and infrastructure. The majority of the issues started when they released their site's redesign. It's not just Telus and it's not just Canada having this issue. Unless you can get Google to fix their servers, expect more of the same. See > »www.google.ca/search?q=slow+youtube

I know it's not the peering... I was joking as if it was the peering maybe Telus would fix it then.

You do realize that DNS and peering are a major portion of "servers and infrastructure," right?

DNS often plays a significant role in deciding which CDN servers a client connects to. Which CDN server you connect to affects the routes the traffic will travel across. The idea behind trying different DNS resolvers was to try and end up at a different CDN POP, to perhaps avoid a potentially-overutilized peering connection between Telus and the nearest CDN POP.
