Oh dear... Am I being throttled? Or just downright being Region Blocked!?!

Last night I noticed I was having terrible connection issues, ie slow download speeds (ranging from 20kb/s - 500kb/s) from servers located in Amsterdam. I'm currently located in Florida, and before last night I would get downloads from 4Mib/s to 5Mib/s.

 

Now if I try to speedtest to Amsterdam I get

On average my speed is 45MB/s down, and 35MB/s up. I pay for 35/35.

So I'm very upset and confused as to why I can't download from Oversea connections all of a sudden.


I've tried on close friends with the same connection as me, and they have no issues. 

 

Is Verizon blocking me?

Any insight would greatly be appreciated! 🙂

I reset my router, and turned it off, as well as turned off the ONT for rougly an Hour. When I came back, I had a newely established IP and was able to connect with no problem whatsoever.
