Hi, I have AT&T fiber, network is super fast, no problems of any kind. 1Gb.
Recently I started using an IPTV service to watch Italian television. AT&T causes buffering each few seconds, then restarts in few seconds, and so on.
I tried everything I could read, but this issue is always there.
The only way this IPTV service works from my home is when I use a VPN service. Sometimes is the VPN itself that is a bit slow, which causes buffering.
This IPTV service works perfectly with other providers here in Austin (Spectrum, Grande) and even from my AT&T iPhone, when connected to the cellular network, works fine.
This is VERY frustrating, for some reasons AT&T is creating problems to the IPTV streaming. I'd love to be able to use this without VPN, especially because the VPN service from my android TV is very unreliable, so at the end I almost always watch IPTV from the computer, and not my smart TV.
Any idea you could share about this mystery, would be great.
Hi, thanks for your message, but my problem has nothing to do with bandwidth.
I have Gigapower, speed is great. I can stream all kind of high quality videos in all possible ways.
Moreover, as I told you, if I enable a VPN service, it works. And the VPN itselt of course also takes some bandwidth.
This is related with something being blocked for the IPTV streaming by AT&T.
Is there any way you can trace my problem ? It is quite frustrating this doesn't happen with other providers, and with AT&T I have to use a VPN, which itself has frequently problems. This IPTV service is super fast and works with other providers (or even AT&T if I use it from my cell phone with the cellular network). But with AT&T Internet Gigapower, using my home gateway, something is going on and is causing buffering each few seconds.
I hope you can help, I'm thinking to switch provider soon if this cannot be resolved. This IPTV is important for my family.
