It's a real issue, and it's a bummer, especially now that we're all stuck at home, using the internet almost constantly. Why is our data going slow now, here at the end of the month? Could it be because we're streaming a LOT of media every single day, and our internet provider starts throttling our data speed after we've used a given amount of data for the month?
