Slow transfers and buffering issues (Youtube, etc) During Evening Hours
Starting to see a consistant issue now with buffering and slow download speeds from certain cites around the same time between 6-8 or 9pm every day.
For the past 2-3 months now, youtube speeds have dropped and I'm stuck with buffering issues every day between 6-9pm (the time I notice the drops and buffering) I've rebooted my router and gateway to no avail and during this time, I'm not able to resolve this issue and then sometime between 8-9pm the issue resolves itself.
I also have a small file server I host some files on based out of the Netherlands which has the same issue with slowness when pulling files off of to my home PC around the same time and it magically clears up around the same time as youtube (but has has the issue for about a month longer).
Something is going on with the routing or capacity either locally here or regionally (I'm located in the NorthEast Bayarea/Sacramento region). My connection routes through the Bay Area and read that there has been ongoing issues with the xfinity side of things having the same issues with slowness and high pings: http://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Basic-Internet-Connectivity-And/Download-speed-gets-DRASTICALLY-lower-at-night-time-8PM-11PM/m-p/2562440/highlight/false#M229488
I need to get this fixed, my service isn't usable during this time which is after work and it's happening every day.
I have a Netgear static IP gateway on the 75/15 business plan through my work. What can be done here, can someone check my gateway or routes in my area to see if anything is bad? Thanks.
