Netflix Buffering

Foe the past month or so i've had issues with buffering and resolution changes (240/480 etc) when watching netflix in HD.
I am also getting it now and then when watching you tube too.
I am using an apple airport extreme router
I have a 76MB download and has happened while using different DNS servers. Currently using opendns.
With the recent outages and my phone number issue (post on other board) i am seriously considering saying goodbye to PN. Anyone else having the same issues

I watched an HD film on Netflix via Apple TV box last night without a problem.
And, my Apple TV box is connected by wifi!
Have you asked for PN staff on here to look into it?

Re: Netflix Buffering

Our testing isn't showing any issues.
Is this over wireless and if so is it possible to try a wired connection?

Re: Netflix Buffering

I've not had any issues since my FTTC install with my connection or buffering other than the WWE Network but that's the WWE's server side issue with lack of Peering/CDN at peak times and nothing to do with Plusnet,

@RyanK
What kind of speedtest results do you get when you start to see issues with buffering?

Re: Netflix Buffering

I've not ran any when it happens as I'm too busy trying to get it to stop. I'll try next  time and report back
