As unfortunate as it is, I put up with those routine bi-monthly week long slow-downs as well. For the most part it never seems to be an issue with Verizon as there's always another ISP seeing the same thing (and the last one, it wasn't just Verizon; Cox saw the same problems and even more distant, European ISPs had the same problems). While I know it would be nice for Verizon to just come out and say it's YouTube's problem which it generally is, they really don't support the site besides making the peering agreements to connect to Google's network. The fact that Google has a CDN for that site which takes you to different servers depending on ISP and location (and even DNS Servers), doesn't really help the matter out either which is why tech support won't exactly be able to give you a clear answer.
