One thing I have noticed on youtube lately, the 1080 isn't what it once was... My content looks way better on my final file than it does once I upload it... Their compression software is messing up the quality.
I wonder how your tested rate compares to what you're paying for. That result reminds me of DSL.

well as of currently today it seems to have fixed itself. we will see if it deteriorates later in the day.



might want to check if your isp is doing some bandwidth throttling on you. i think google has some tools for that.

also, google started testing a gigabit (yes, GIGA!) connection with kansas city's customers, and time warner's explanation for not competeting with it is they don't think customers like you would want it anyway
When it comes to ISP Speeds by our major providers, things are looking dodgy for the future. For example, Verizon just increased the cost paid by their Baltimore DSL subscribers without improving service, citing needs for maintenance. This puts the cost closer to the the Verizon Wireless mobile hotspot plans but, of course, those charge by the mega/giga-bit download.

And then, you have this article outling AT&Ts plans:
