I have constantly having this issue from the day I have changed to VERIZON ..... Previously I had a slower internet speed but I never had an issue with buffering my online videos or for anything. I switched to VERIZON FIOS and everything turned out to be way way slower than expected. I was told by the Tech support to change my plan from 15/5 to 50/25 .. I did .. ... Still no use ... I never get a better speed on WIFI.... I figure out that may be an issue with the laptop which never had this issue with the previous provider ... ( looks like the PC is not able to handle 50mbps) Dumb **bleep** .. it never had this buffering issue on a slower internet provider ... The speed test shows great(~Mbps) result but the overall online streaming is pathetic... for HD videos to stream i have to let it buffer for 10-15 min .... even then after some time it keeps breaking.... I changed from a wireless connection to a wired ethernet .. no change still the online streaming is way slow. I have made several complained. ... talked to the online reps multiple time but its not helping. I am really disappointed with the internet speed. If this continues i see no point in continuing the service . I would go back to my old carrier with a slow speed but i dnt have to go with the pain of slow online streaming.
Please provide a resolution. on this as soon as possible before i look for disconnecting my services.
I am almost sure that there might be some issue with the free wireless router they provide. A week ago all the videos were just streaming properly on the older internet provider. I think there is some router/firewall setting that is blocking the buffering speed. On the speed test its almost greater than 55mbps consistantly which should be more than enuf to buffering any HD video. Does anyone aware of any soloution on the firewall which could help resolve this issue.
OK .... As I dnt get any resolution to my buffering speed from the tech support. I have decided to go back to my old ISP ... Its not even a month and I am terminating my services. Very pathetic ..... TOTALLY Disappointed .

I've had just as much issues with my internet. I was excited for fiber internet, but Verizon apparently doesn't know how to work it. I will be switching ISPs when my contract runs out.
