I've noticed a disturbing rate of frequency lately on my Moto Droid with Verizon. While trying to stream YouTube vids via 3G, my connection will automatically throttle down to 1x EVDO speeds and the YouTube vids begin to stutter and essentially become unwatchable.
I never watch HQ YouTube vids while on 3G. Wireless streams great, of course. Furthermore, when I get out of YouTube, wait a little, I'll reacquire my 3G connection and all is well again.
For streaming audio like Pandora, RadioTime, Slacker, or Flash Audio via the browser, I never get the throttle back to 1x EVDO from 3G.
Just curious to see if anyone else out there experiences this throttling and wondering if Verizon is intentionally throttling YouTube on 3G service?
