    Do your videos that you are playing ever stop to buffer? If so, how long for?

    Mine can buffer for up to 30 seconds . I'm on BT broadband by the way.

    About 2 meg(mb?) is good for stuff like playing games,youtube videos,using the internet etc. If you are just 1 device. However, higher speeds like mine 16mb allows me to use youtube while playing video games online, and also lets me download. Lets multiple devices use youtube at the same time etc. Makes life easier.

    My speed is fast but other people have way faster internet like 30meg I think

    Got an absolute 6k peasant line. 16k is the max that I can get here currently, and even that was only considered decent 5 years ago. 20km closer to the next biggest city and I could probably get a 50-100k glassfibre line....

    Yeah, they often stop to buffer and never stop buffering or else they crash.

    Never have to stop for buffering but sometimes the broadband goes entirely for a few minutes to a few hours. Quite disappointing for BT's Infinity package tbh.
