Just purchased U-Verse Internet 18mbps; can barely even stream a TV show from Netflix. What gives?
My u-verse internet was connected today, I purchased the 18mbps package for nearly $60 a month and as we were trying to watch a show on Netflix, it would frequently go to a buffering screen and/or the picture quality would degrade. This internet is fiber to the demarc outside of my house and then runs across cat5 throughout my house. I'm using the provided 2Wire Wifi router and a Roku box for netflix. 18mbps should be more than enough bandwidth to stream a show on Netflix...we've actually resorted to using my Verizon Hotspot for the time being because attempting to stream anything over the Uverse connection just isn't working.
Whats the deal? Is this sort of performance to be expected?
