Hi- Why has Steaming of Netflix, hulu etc gotten so slow even with download speeds of nearly 2.7 to 3 mbps.
That use to be enough for streaming but in the last few month everything is constantly stopping. Hulu is useless and Netflix through the roku box use to work well but now it stops to buffer every 10 minutes or so. What is going on?
I called about the same problem today, and got absolutely no where.
It was one of the most frustrating calls I've ever been on.
My on demand isn't working right either.
Verizon was zero help. They were actually rude and talked down to me.
The customer service was awful.
Hulu is news to me as to being slow, but Netflix has been having some known issues with Verizon and other ISPs in relationship to night time usage. Honestly, there's been a lot of debate but the problem could be anywhere. Verizon for example, doesn't have problems in all of their footprint with Netflix.
At 3Mbps, you're stretching it thin for "720p" streaming. To start, you are ruling out every chance that another device or person could be using up your bandwidth causing the pauses to the stream, right?
