Re: Youtube Download Slowing Down Causing Buffer possible CDN issue

I am using Chrome+ SwitchyOmega

create a profile which put the traffic to proxy only when we access *.googlevideo.com

you can find the proxy from (Link removed for security reasons - RogersMoin)

most of top speed IP can bring you 30-50Mbps youtube speed.

I'm currently experiencing this issue and it's pretty frustrating considering I have 500u.

 

Youtube nerd stats show connection speed capping at around 9000kbps

Re: Youtube Download Slowing Down Causing Buffer possible CDN issue

I'm watching on LG Smart TV youtube app so using a proxy is unfortunately not an option.

Why has this thread been marked as solved if not a single person complaining in here has had this issue resolved?

I asked the admins to remove solved but no reply.!

Yeah, I use Roku so can't use proxy. I tried to route traffic through VPN, but VPN not too fast for 4k!

Its very frustrating.

This is way past unacceptable, overbearing and i know for a 100 percent it's rogers fault. I currently have a different provider concurrently as well with one twentieth the advertised speed and it works perfect meanwhile rogers gigabit can even move. What a shame and disappointment to customers like myself. What am i really paying for?

Good morning Community!

 

While I don't have an official update that I can share right now, I can say that we have been working on this issue this week and will be reaching out to affected users for further testing and feedback shortly.

 

We're all YouTube users here too so we know how frustrating buffering can get. Please bear with us, we're working on it!

 

Regards,

RogersCorey

OMG! for almost 3month FINALLY an "official" response for this problem.
At least we know that Rogers knows this problem now.
Hope there will be some progress next week.

thank you
