So why using a VPN does it work about 100% quicker ? I've worked in IT for 23+ years, and either there is an issue with DNS / Network settings at BT or they are shaping traffic.
Its not just Netflix on Android, its GMail as well and Facebook.
So how do you explain this ?
Its impacting my daughters Motorola G4 and My OnePlus 3T and Samsung S5. As soon as we switch to a VPN speeds are great.
We're also seeing the slowdown in Gmail, Facebook but its Netflix that is painful. Switch it onto 4G it flies, use the other apps via a VPN and they are instant, go direct via BT its incredibly slow.
My BT WholeHome WIFI is connected over gigabit homeplugs so it should be quick 🙂 yet we only see this when using the VPN on the devices.
Good Shout but on Android you can only disable IP6 if you are root, and I can't find a away to disable it on the BT Smarthub.
Do you get this issue if you connect directly to the SmartHub wifi instead of the BT Whole Home WiFi?
