I recently signed up for Tidal music streaming service. Higher resolution = higher demand. Since the beginning of the new year I’ve noticed significant “throttling” (not here to mince words-don’t care if it’s something else just want to correct), to the point that every song played will stop a minimum of 1 time and start back up after buffering. When I try one of those bandwidth tests it shows that I’m within limits. My plan was the highest amount at the time of sign up. I think there may be an unlimited option for an additional $30/ month that I would be willing to pay, but from what I’m reading it still may be an issue. My son games online, so between that and a Tidal we probably pull some high spikes of data. How do I resolve this issue? If I go VPN will that help? Looking for solutions, not an argument.
