So once again I've been unable to watch Twitch.tv for hours now. Even 480p doesn't work. I've been googling about that and it seems that this has been going on for years for some of my ISP's customers. The general gist (though unconfirmed my Telekom) seems to be that the routes Telekom uses to connect to the likes of Youtube, Twitch, and Vimeo are regularly overloaded, most often in the evening. Telekom won't change their peering though because those services produce a lot of bandwidth, yet refuse to share the cost of improving the connection.
WHICH OF COURSE I DON'T GIVE A FLYING FUCK ABOUT GODDAMMIT.
Telekom, you're my service provider, I pay A LOT of money for your service and this is unacceptable. Am I supposed to pay yet more money to some VPN provider just to make my internet connection work properly?!
(Yes I'm venting here but do I intend to write a slightly more polite e-Mail to them as well).
Just to give you an idea, the trailer available here just stops after two seconds. I actually wanted to see that show, but now that I'm aware of the problems streaming vimeo I can't buy it. It's ON DEMAND but I won't be able to watch it whenever the hell I like.
