Is it just me or is everyone suffering from this too ?

I can barely view any videos.
Yes the speed is REALLY slow.....BUT that's not even the problem.

The red buffer bar would load like a quarter of the way then it would zap to the finish line....so one would think the vid is ready.......but Nooooo  if i play it then it stops wherever that red bar started to zap (usually 25% of the way)

I've tried to turning "internet caching" on and off on My Account.....to no avail. (even after restarting modem.)

the net is usually quite fast during day time, but it gets quite slow during night time
it takes quite awhile to load videos during night time

Common sense is not as common as you think.

I have had that zap thing happen where YouTube says it's downloaded but it isn't. Most;y happens when my connections got a slow sync rate.

I didn't really. I find that to get a better sync is to restart the modem.

Let it get to 10% or so then reload the whole page, that way you should get the version from the Slingshot cache. If you don't check that your DNS is set to Slingshot's DNS servers.

The DNS server addresses are on the Slingshot support site. Google how to set them for your router and OS. Most people set them on the router and then use the router as the DNS server for the local network.
