I have a friend that lives in the same neighborhood and has MLB.tv but he is on Orcon and he has no issues with buffering whatsoever.
When I watch the games I can see that it pulls about 1.1mbps and then I just watch the throughput drop down to .4mpbs and then it spikes up again.
The problem is not my connection because I'm about 200 feet from my cabinet and I synch at 20mbps and I can always pull 17-18mbps in speedtesting local traffic or by running a torrent speed test. The problem is very specific to my streaming data from MLB.tv
Does anyone else here on Telstra use MLB.tv and have similar problems?
This is pretty much a deal killer for me and if Telstra can't fix it, I will have to move to another ISP.
I have filed a ticket with Telstra, but the rep I have spoken to has no idea what the problem is and I'm waiting to hear back while they research the issue.
