Buffering Solutions can be hard to decipher. TD's TV Service provides you many helpful tips and suggestions to resolve your IPTV buffering issues. Most buffering problems come down to a weak or under powered streaming device and/or poor internet service. Below we will go over, internet speeds & tests, streaming devices and hardware performance, app maintenance & settings, speed throttling, net neutrality and VPN’s. You could have more than one problem affecting your buffering situation. There is also a Helpful Tip / Quick Guide at the bottom of this page.
Internet speeds have a lot to do with things. TD's TV Service recommends allowing 25 mbs per active streaming device for viewing, IPTV. Keep in mind a hard-wired Ethernet connection will give you the best results. Most routers, even the great ones, will loose some signal strength over a WiFi connection. So then, a 100 mbs service plan will be enough for most users but this all depends on how many devices are being used at the same time. If someone in your household does a lot of online gaming then you will want to consider getting the best and strongest service available.
Doing a speed test can help you resolve and diagnose any buffering issues you may encounter. Always do a speed test from the actual device you are using and/or having problems with. TD's TV Service recommends using the Ookla speed test app that can be found in the Google play store or you can get it directly from your web browser by going to https://www.speedtest.net/.
As usual, all Firestick users must use a different application available from the Amazon app store. The application is called Analiti and can be found in the Amazon Marketplace

Most routers provided by your internet service are sub-par at best compared to whats available on the market today. If your using a stock router, then we strongly recommend hard-wiring your streaming device via Ethernet port. If hard-wiring isn’t a option then you may need to upgrade your router. There are many different situations that need to be considered when choosing a router. Depending upon your needs we recommend using google to research routers specs, performance and reviews.
Upgrading your router has many advantages. Not only can you improve your signal strength and range, but many of them allow you to optimize the settings to fit your needs. Almost all new routers have an app that you can use to help manage such things like, parental controls, password settings, device lists, apply a VPN to cover all devices, updating router firmware and much more.
Another thing you should learn is how many devices are on each bandwidth. What I mean by this is most people have a dual band router which provides you 2 separate WiFi bandwidths for your devices to run on. There is the 2.4 Ghz bandwidth, which provides a lower frequency but wider WiFi umbrella range. And the 5 GHz bandwidth, which has a stronger yet higher frequency with a shorter WiFi umbrella range.
