Gigapower - Youtube Throttling
I am in Nashville, TN and am having issues with youtube streaming. It gets me on haystack.tv (I think they get streams from youtube) and youtube. Lots of times I can't get videos to play at all. When I first got the connection installed in August 2016 everything was perfect. In fact when I first got it, as a test I opened 3 4k video feeds at the same time. They started instantly with zero buffering and fast seeking. Fastforward to the past few months and I have to wait atleast 30 seconds for a 720p video to start and then experience constant buffering interruptions. I seem to be having the same problem as: https://forums.att.com/t5/AT-T-Fiber-Equipment/GigaPower-Throttling-on-YouTube/td-p/4868153
- My connection is Gigapower 1G/1G
- If I connect through my VPN, I get 4k with no buffering or delays.
- Everything speed tests great 900+ up 900+ down with a 5ms ping.
- This happens with all my devices connected to the modem. Cell phones, tablets, tvs, laptops, and pcs. Behavior is identical across all wired or WiFi.
Things I have tried:
Diabling ipv6 on devices and modem
Using google DNS
