Hey guys. So I just moved to another isp and something has been bugging the heck out of me. The download isnt like instant 50mbps. It starts slow. Like it's capped to 7-10mbps. Then after a few seconds it goes to 20mbps. Wait a few seconds. Then it goes to my 50mbps plan. It's very weird. The upload is fine tho. Instant 50mbps. Tried using vpn etc. And it's the same thing . So it seems like they're doing something... Here's my screen record

I can't upload videos here...

probably server side lag in the test. Or lag across the internet somewhere, including the ISP. Your upload is buffered locally.
what are the ping times ?

No no. The thing that's doing this seems to be the isp. I've tried using a vpn and it's the exact same. It is like this on all things. Even .. and yeah upload is buffered locally but I don't see any relations to the download slowness? Since downloading should work just fine in 50mbps from the first time since you don't need to cache it
