When it comes to accessing online content, the faster the internet, the smoother your streams and downloads would be. But what if you are not getting the speeds you are paying for? Chances are – you are being throttled.
Repeated buffering and sudden speed drops are the main signs of bandwidth throttling, which is something ISPs (Internet Service Providers) do to slow down the internet connection of their users. Throttling can occur at any time and any place between your device (smartphone, tablet or personal computer) and the service or website that you’re using.
Is your internet speed excellent during the day but it slows to a crawl at 9 PM? It’s probably your ISP trying to avoid traffic jams during internet peak times.
By making access to certain streaming websites mission impossible, the ISP may be trying to encourage the adoption of alternative paid services that benefit them or their affiliate partners.
Sometimes your ISP can get suspicious when they see that too much data is being uploaded or downloaded from a popular website. For example, you may get throttled only when using your favorite streaming platform or P2P services.
A snail-speed connection may be a sign that you have exceeded your monthly bandwidth limit. In other words, your ISP tries to encourage you to upgrade your plan.
