Ok so the dreaded buffering issue has returned to Snap. Trying to watch the keynote is such a pain. I would expect this to come from other ISPs but not Snap. Anyone else experiencing the same?

Yeah the final 15 minutes were terrible for me.
I'm picking overload issues... I'll wait for a Vidcast download to watch the final part I suppose.

Just a thought,

You were trying to watch a keynote a few hours after it was released along with probably another million people globally from a CDN hosted in America ?
I could see that potentially being slow due to international transit / the CDN on the other end.

I am having issues with hulu streaming via unblock-us. I used to be on Vodafone until a few weeks ago, I swapped to snap for their caps.
While my download speeds are excellent, streaming seems to be hit and miss (more miss then hit)
I have send a ticket to support. What's the chances this will actually change things?

Snap have had streaming issues for a little while now, and it appears to have got worse since they increased there caps? (seems like they increased the data caps per user but didn't increase overall bandwidth in) hence the link is suffering?

I've emailed in to Snap's support que aswell, User ID: scottk . Didn't get much of a useful response, seemed pretty generic.

I am changing providers this month or the next, I'll pay a little more, but performance is what I want. If I want 200gb's I'll pay for it.
