Hopefully you haven't downloaded a virus.
They are deliberately throttling Netflix & YouTube to reduce the strain it puts on the internet as so many people are forced to stay in during the Coronavirus pandemic.
I've noticed my nowbroadband performing a little bad than normal.
Working fine here also on virgin media.

It's not good is it maccy, you know I'd gladly forgo the internet to put some normality back into the world. It's a crazy ride at the mo & I'd quite like to get off.
My internet is about 100mbps slower than normal but still better than 90% of uk

Ditto rich don't get me wrong I've got lots of long time friends on here and it's wonderful that we can keep each others spirits up but the internet running slow compared to what's happening out there is the last of my worries x
I’m in Manchester and most my mates having same issue

You can put it back to 4K thankfully. It's just most people won't bother toggling the setting.
