My ISP is Verizon FIOS, and I have checked my speed and I am at 17/5 MBPS, enough to download any other content quickly like games, movies, Netflix HD...etc.
It seems to me that only youtube performs poorly, almost as if my ISP is throttling data only to youtube. I know this is completely unethical and illegal, but I can't think of any other reason. It's not like the old days where one just had a slow connection and you could watch the video buffer, rather it loads quickly and then just stops, no matter how long you wait.
I run google chrome (I have tried in IE and FF with no luck) in Windows 7 on a very high performing computer. Any help would be much appreciated!
