      Streaming is slow.

      Streaming is really slow on my connection, as you can see in my signature i have amazing download speed (1.4 Megabytes average). I've tried changing web browsers, changing DNS and I even went to the extreme and installed a new OS. When I watch youtube on 480p and sometimes even 360p it is contantly buffering, and its not just youtube. This happens for bbc iplayer itv player the list goes on.

      Can anyone help with this problem? Thanks.

      Are you using wireless? Your noise margin isn't very good on your download, how is the router connected to the line and what else is plugged into the telephone line?

      I am using wireless (router right next to laptop) and there is also a old telephone connected to the BT socket. Like i said before, my download speed is EPIC but my streaming stinks.

      try using Ethernet (if possible) and see if it improves. OR change channel on the router
