Streaming sites (iPlayer, 4od, etc) not loading at all



We've been unable to get any service from video streaming sites for a while now. If we try to use iPlayer/4od/ITV player/etc there is just a blank space where the player should be. Nothing appears to be loading, i.e. there's no interface or error, it's just as if there were nothing there at all. According to we're getting a download speed of 8.89 Mbps though, so that wouldn't appear to be the issue. This is the same at all times of day. Does anybody have any ideas what's wrong or how we might be able to fix it?






P.S. I've posted any informaiton I think might be useful here:


Downstream SNR: 42.6 dBmV

Downstream Power: 3.6 dBmV

Upstream Power:43.5 dBmV

Re: Streaming sites (iPlayer, 4od, etc) not loading at all

Hi David,

After looking through your traceroutes, it appears that there appears to be an issue on the second hop and subsequently on the 4th hop. After comparing this with the network at the time you posted, I can see that your UBR is suffering from high downstream utilisation. If this load continues I will raise this to our network team.

Dealing specifically with your issue, does iPlayer etc load on another computer?
Kind Regards,

Oliver C
