Hey guys,
As of late i've been having a horrible youtube experience to the point where all videos are unwatchable.
It happens at anytime of the day.

I go to youtube > search a video > click on the link > video loads about 1 quarter (looking at the red bar) , then the red bar suddenly goes ZAP to the finish line so one would think its FULLY buffered. .... > so i play it, and ............It got stuck right where the Zap started.

I tried several browsers, i tried resetting my modem for a few minutes. SAME ISSUE.

Can anyone help me ???

When will this happen?

Are we going to be getting refunds for the crappy service we have experienced?

We're changing to Vodafone at the end of this month, BYE SLINGSHOT.
