For last 2 weeks, YouTube has been buffering a lot. I am on cable in JohnsonVille. No issues with domestic websites. Anyone else experiencing youtube issues on cable in johnsonville.

I did read that. My issue is with international traffic impact on domestic downloads for me.

I guess do I need to log a case with support? Tried couple of times, wait times were 40 mins, so gave up.

YouTube is not international traffic. Vodafone cable has a YouTube cache (and has had one since the TelstraClear years). This sounds more like a cache problem.


Are you using ethernet or WiFi? Restarted the router/modem? Yes, the .43 and .44 are the correct DNS.


If you do these things and still have problems, raise a ticket.

Thanks I did all that. Reason I said international is because my work SharePoint and sfdc has become worse in last couple of weeks. These are hosted in North America.
