+ - Could Verizon be throttling Hulu?

Submitted by gchiker
gchiker (1295124) writes "For the last two days whenever I start up a Hulu video, my download speed crashes. Normally I have about 6 to 7 mps. As soon as a Hulu video starts, it drops to from about 0.20 to 1.5 mps.
This causes the Hulu videos to constantly pause to catch up the stream.
If I close the Hulu tab, then my download speed goes back to normal.
If I use Netflix or Youtube, it plays fine, keeps up a high download speed, and with no pauses.

Anyone else noticing this in southern California?

After a 2 hour phone call to Verizon support, they say they are going to fix it by tomorrow.

But why would only Hulu cause this slowdown?"
