@philip Overall I find the FTTH connection in Kerala pretty great. I get the full speeds pretty much always. Streaming Netflix, Hotstar, Prime Video always works over full HD or the max available quality.

I haven't used torrents much on the BSNL connection so can't comment on that. But considering every other aspects of the connection looking great, I don't think there'd be an issue with that. I must add that I almost always use private trackers.

Download speeds over http almost always maxes out the connection for me.

Netflix speeds are good here. No problems with netflix. But I don't use Netflix often.

I am getting very slow speeds in Hotstar, Sonyliv etc. Which I use regularly..With Chromecast. Buffering is slow and sometimes stops playing video ..But internet speed testing shows speeds are okay. Why this happen? They are restricting speeds in Chromecast?

I tested playing videos in my mobile. Its streaming beautifully in high resolution. No issues. So the problem happens only in Chromecast. But why?

If the problem is with Chromecast, then Netflix should should not play in Chromecast. But Netflix plays very beautifully in Chromecast.

confused..

I am also having similar problem. With Bharat Fiber 100 Mbps plan, which I started using few days ago, I am getting choking effect while using Netflix. While streaming with Amazon Prime, Hotstar, Youtube is blazing fast, using Netflix is a problem. This problem is persistent with Netflix, whether I use PC, cellphone, Android tablet or Amazon Fire TV stick. Within one minute the streaming stops and buffering screen remains. If I change to ADSL plan (which I still have) Netflix runs smoothly. Is Bhart fiber somehow choking Netflix streaming? I have tried various options given at Netflix site.

I think it is an issue with the ip addresses they are issuing.Sometimes i got IPs within 61... range and then downloads and streaming to netflix and prime are blazing fast. I experienced this issue whenever i got IPs within the 59 series and 117 series. Anyone with VPN please check it whether they have same issue.
