2. Low quota internet connection

The easiest way to check out if your download speeds are comparable to those mentioned by your internet service provider is to go through a speed test (like speedtest.net).

  2. Opt for a better Internet service provider.

So, choose the quality of the video according to your download speed.

  2. End all bandwidth-consuming processes running in the background.
  3. Close extra apps.

Wait, relax for some time and try again; otherwise, contact your ISP.
