I have been having exctly the same thoughts. Seems like for the last 3 or more months YouTube streaming is artificially throttled. Everyone else with other carriers including the much hated Comcast people are having no problems. Also, no p[roblems from work or elsewhere. I don't know what Verizon is upt to.

Just went back to comcast 3 days ago I have to tell everyone my Fios 75/35 connection was 50 times slower on youtube than my new 50/10 connection on comcast. It's a shame they cant get this issue solved I would have never left but I personally value youtube to much to stay. I can honestly say I have been able to watch what I want when I want in HD without even a hitch of buffering.

I am glad I came upon these threads regarding this issue. Youtube is mostly unusable for me. I didn't like comcast but at least they didnt have problems with the worlds largest video sharing site. I have chatted and called twice complaining about the hang ups and problems with Youtube. I didn't have problems with comcast. My cell phone plays youtube videos faster than my home internet! Terrible.
Dumping Fios tomorrow before i have to pay a cancellation fee.

I wish I would have used Youtube within the first few weeks I had Fios, because I would have cancelled. I've also had issues streaming from my xbox/ps3 with media center or media servers since I've had Fios. I've had TWC and Comcast not too long ago and never had these type of issues. I only use Youtube every few days or so, but it **bleep** me off that I'm paying all this money every month and I have all these issues.

contact tech support ask them to run a break dhcp lease
and reboot the ONT it should be fixed.
if you are calling them from home phone then the call might be disconnected hence try using your cell phone or use the chat suppport on wired connection.

I'm in the Philadelphia area, and even YouTube's 240p pauses every 2-3 seconds. I have tried fixing DHCP, DNS, etc. and nothing has worked. My cellphone can stream videos faster on 3G than I can with the computers in my house.
Has anyone found a long-run solution to this? Or has FiOS starting to throttle connection speeds?

Same problem here. Running OpenDNS. Tried multiple browsers, cleared caches, updated Flash. Vimeo runs fine. Apple movie trailers download or play in HD at full rated speeds. It's a YouTube issue and there is no resolution at this point in time.

I've seen there are a few posts about this but I feel Verizon will not respond until more of us demand their attention for this problem. I've changed DNS, reboot router, changed channels, and tried many other "fixes" but nothing works. Does Verizon browse this forum?
EDIT: Could this possibly be youtube's fault? I've talked to friends in the same area with different ISP who have the same experience.
