There is clearly throttling on my Smart TV youtube app, and my ps4 pro youtube app. I can watch the same video on my macbook without issue - hitting 60+ mbps from my browser. Through my youtube apps speeds are under 10mbps on the weekends and evenings
As a tip, try Google's real speed test, not ooklas. Its quite telling that i am getting 10-12mpbs download via google's, but 200+ mbps on Ookla speedtest
I am getting to the point of ditching Rogers and going back to my old ISP.
Only reason I came to Rogers is because of a good deal they gave me for their Gigabit internet. Doesn't matter if I can't watch Youtube.
My download speeds are fine any time during the day/evening so I know its not speed. Like you mentioned they are perhaps throttling Youtube traffic from certain devices?
re r3.sn-gvbxgn-tt1e.gvt1.com and blocking it. Instead of blocking, if you have dnsmasq on your router, just re-direct this host to another one that is faster, not sure if that will work better.
what is a good one? is r2 better?
I am using the Rogers provided modem..
Requested to have the firmware updated and finally got it this morning.
So I will test it later when I get home from work.
Thanks for the info!
I've requested version 33T3
I will test it tonight after work.
