- I'm not too sure unfortunately. The guys that clued me into this did some sophisticated traffic sniffing to see exactly what requests their browser was passing along, which highlighted the traffic shaping TWC is doing. I didn't even know YouTube used cache servers to deliver content before this (makes sense though), but I have long suspected +Time Warner Cable
of throttling, as I used to game online quite a bit but my ping with TWC got so bad I gave up on playing MMOs and other games that require a stable internet connection as I would get dropped constantly. +cirE retxeD
- same deal, I can stream Spotify, Twitch.tv, YouTube, etc without any
issues using my +Verizon Wireless
4G hotspot, but my connection from TWC can't maintain a stream from most any of those services; Netflix can't serve up HD content to me most of the time even though speedtest shows 45+ Mb down. TWC's support techs are absolutely clueless - once you get past the level 1 guys reading a script, the level 2 guys will always claim there is no trouble showing on their end despite all the evidence to the contrary. I've had countless technicians come check the equipment & lines, 2-3 "supervisors" out to my house and filed 2 complaints with the BBB, resulting in TWC's corporate office calling me a liar and saying there is no trouble with the equipment and they've done their best but cannot "fix" anything. I gave up on using wireless after TWC said they cannot and will not support it (despite offering a wireless modem and charging me monthly for it) and ran hardlines to all the rooms in my house and I still have the same trouble.
