I have already tried low settings on Netflix, still an issue for me 😕
It does only seem to be a problem for gamers, a small % of customers so thast probably why a help guru has not noticed this thread 😄
there are plenty of other posts on this issue, which is affecting other ISPs.
and a possible solution at the end of this thread https://community.bt.com/t5/Home-setup-Wi-Fi-network/Ping-spikes-when-gaming-and-watching-Netflix-an...
not sure that would be a solution as changing to default vido quality, you will not get a good picture on netflix

For the benefit of other users, which TP Link router did you decide to use, and perhaps you may like to share the setting with other people, as I expected it to be an upload issue, as I mentioned on other threads?
Why Netflix has to upload so much data, is a bit of a mystery, but I have monitored it myself, and can confirm it. It has quite an impact on latency, which seems to mostly affect VDSL connections.
What is actually contained in those data packets, apart from the normal TCP ACK packets, is a mystery, as its encrypted, but they are probably monitoring how you use the service.
they are monitoring if you are using a vpn, also monitoring your location.
