What Is Buffering And What Will Not Fix It

There is an ad on tv currently for an internet service provider where one woman claims that her computer is buffering video and the woman she is talking to says that , if she switches to this provider her buffering issue will stop , as she can switch to a plan that will give her an increase to 300GB.

Let me make this clear , the amount you download has nothing to do with your internet connection , it is the speed of your connection that counts towards making sure you don’t have buffering .

Buffering is when your computer is trying to load something but keeps pausing , ” say ” when trying to watch a You Tube video and it keeps pausing all the time. 

Buffering will usually start at the beginning of a video so that enough of the video is ” backloaded ” so you can watch the video.
