Re: YOUTUBE BUFFERING PROBLEMS

Speed is a little better but still bad. 1080p videos still require pausing and buffering. Forget about 1440p or 4k. I'm on 100Mbps.

It just started to get bad again for me.

I have also been experiencing the exact same issue as well as a friend (both of us in the San Fernando Valley), and surprisingly, another friend on another ISP is not experiencing such an issue. I have the 300/20 plan and as mentioned before, Vimeo and Netflix have no issues while YouTube has that insane buffer. On good days, the stats show a 60k - 80k Kbps connection speed, but most often they drop considerably low to 300 - 500 Kbps. Unfortunately I cannot test a direct connection to the modem at the moment as there are plenty of people on my network, but I was just trying to watch a YouTube video which, as usual, starts around 1300 - 1500 Kbps and drops to 300 - 500 Kbps. I turned on my VPN and that connection speed skyrocketed to 80k Kbps. Now I'm convinced that Spectrum is the issue. I have been trying for the past few weeks to come to a solution thinking it was the new modem / router setup I installed (SB6183 and Archer C7),  but thankfully they're not the issue and that I found this thread. Hopefully this gets resolved soon because I am beyond frustrated.
