Samsung Galaxy s3 Wifi is really slow on youtube?

Samsung Galaxy s3 Wifi is really slow on youtube?

It takes forever to Watch Youtube videos in HD (like 5-10 minutes ) and even slow for Non HD or HQ ( like 2-5 minutes). My Internet Download speed according to Speedtest.net ( on Wifi mind you ) is anywhere between 15 MBPS and 25 MBPS. MY Galaxy s3 is the Red one and is on Jelly bean if that matters

Are you using an app or navigating to the mobile YouTube site?

 

Do you notice the same if you use a different video service like Vimeo?

Use the youtube speedtest since speedtest.net doesn't matter in your case. You should be getting a 8-10MB connection with Youtube. Also, note that Youtube is very slow between 1PM-5PM EST due to high traffic. So try running youtube at different times.
