I have Optimum in Grand junction,CO. I do video uploads at least 3 times a week. I thought it was just YouTube as first that is slowing down but some other websites are to. All computer on my network have the smae problem and i have restart modems/routers plunged directly in the cable modem and so on. Another not is, when I am loading a YouTube video on my iPhone, it takes forever but s soon as WiFi is off the video is playing and loading away in seconds.

Sounds like your ISP has a limit on your bandwidth. If I upload or download a lot of stuff in a short timeframe my speed gets diminished, even though I have unlimited data.

It seems like at times they do it on website like YouTube an other bandwidth heavy site. Between having an apple TV and me doing videos we eat a lot o bandwidth, so i can see it. Is there any test for it?

hmm you could call your ISP and ask if that's what happens. I did that and because I live in the woods they can't do anything about it. But that's Sweden, could be different in other countries.

One test could be to download something heavy using torrents for about 3-4 hours and see if your speed recovers and if not, how long til it recovers.

They could be limited your bandwidth or another scenario is that there are just more people pulling data than there was before. And not just within your network but within the entire range of your ISP.
