    Are you using Wifi or 1X? 1X is terrible for buffering and downloading videos.

    If it worked fine before, then you may have hit your data cap and been throttled. (slowed down)

    If you have went over the data cap, you will just have to wait until it is time to pay your bill and they speed up your data connection again.
