I have reduced the resolution on Netflix to eliminate buffering, but I don't have the option on HBO GO. When trying to watch some of my favorite shows on HBO GO there is constant buffering. For a service provider that touts 25 mbps, this is very strange and your site advertising is misleading! It is true that on large downloads your site will reach 25 mbps and more, but for casual Internet browsing and high resolution streaming, you fall very short!
Have you attempted disabling Video Data Saver to see if that helps any?
No , I haven't. Do you know of anyone watching HBO GO without excessive buffering? I generally connect in the Data Savings hours between 2:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m.
I personally don't know anyone that uses the service, hence why I asked if toggling Video Data Saver fixes the issue for you...
As an aside my system speed tests to avg 40M/s so it must be something else/satellite delay/?.
Or HBO (or other), or something upstream from HughesNet, or...
I've had issues streaming HBO over VerizonWireless in the past. Could be anything.
