Seriously, so fed up with Vodafone. 100/10mb and getting the full speeds on speedtest.net, yet I cannot stream video without constant buffering. Currently watching John Keys flag speech over 2 degrees mobile data, because my 100/10mb cant keep up! Netflix, well, don't get me started. Vodafone, once fibre is in my area I am gone, I have had enough of the constant issues.

there maybe one or two people trying to access it. Seriously though it is probably the originating server not VF, I am VF and having no issues getting anywhere else on the www

Then why was it flawless over mobile data, and why does Netflix never reach 1080p anymore? I had a Downers tech around today, my set up is fine. Things used to be good 7-8 months ago.

OMFG you wont believe what happened when watching that link you posted. It stopped to buffer at 18 seconds in! I nearly punched my monitor.

I have the same things. Have had issues with my RBI speed for months but that seems to have recovered for the moment at least. Even when it is good, though, I still get buffering and fallbacks to the worst possible resolution with pixillation and blockiness to the point that faces become smeary blobs. And for this I am paying RBI rates, too.
