Just a curious post.  We were using someone's iPhone 5S (on 2degres) and put it into WiFi mode due to their data they had carried over.  Tried to watch a video with Youtube.  It works if you leave it in auto ie 144p resolution.  If you change this to 1080p or 720p or 480p it plays a few seconds and then spends the next 5 minute buffering and it does this repeatedly.  This is a bandwidth issue with the iPhone 5S?  

I did try and use my own phone which is also on 2degrees using mobile data directly and it worked fine with 1080p.  

 

 

 

Thoughts?  Cheers.  :)

Your post makes no sense are you connected to Wi-Fi or mobile data?

You mention about carryover data then mention Wi-Fi

We were outside.  iPhone 5S is using mobile data and switched on WiFi Hotspot mode.  I was using my own phone Xiaomi Redmi 3 and connected WiFi to the iPhone.

You did not PHS in the first post that made it very confusing

Was the iPhone 5S attached to the 3G or 4G network at the time?

My phone as in the 2nd post is a Xiaomi Redmi 3.  Using mobile directly on it with 2degrees 1080p was fine.  This was in the same spot as the iPhone when it failed to work at 1080p..  At the time I would been a mixture of 3G and 4G we were driving from Ruapehu back to Wellington so we were in Otaki and also just north of Wellington which should be 4G (Porirua, Jville etc).

Which version of iOS are you running? I recently had an issue with an iphone 5s running iOS 11 where it seemed to repeatedly download the iOS 12 update. It only did this on WiFi, and mostly did it over night. Upgrading to iOS 12 stopped this from happening, but before that it was using about 15GB a day.

 

If your phone was also doing this it could explain why there is no bandwidth left for youtube.

The iPhone5 would need to be on 4G for best results for streaming you are not really comparing Apples with Apples

Best place to start would probably be disable hotspot on iphone, do speedtest, enable hotspot and do speedtest from your phone to see if there's any speed loss
