Buffering is something that happens to all cord cutters at some point but the issue may not be the streaming service, it may be your home network.
Here are three tips to stop buffering on your Streaming Devices, TronicsCity Genuine Android Boxes, and more.
Tip #1: Run a Speed Test
It is not unusual to not get the speed you pay for. Sometimes your ISP can have damage on their lines running to your house, so run a speed test to make sure you are getting the speed you are paying for.
A few months ago I had all kinds of issues streaming, and I ran a test and found out it was my network. I called my ISP, and they came out and fixed something on the pole outside my house, fixing my issues.

Tip #2: Buy a Range Extender
Weak Wi-Fi is a common issue that causes buffering. Getting a range extender is an easy fix this issue as it helps fill weak spots in your house to give you the best speed possible. I have one to help reach my back yard for when I want to sit out and enjoy a beautiful day.
One tip for buying a range extender is to make sure you get one that is made by the same company as your router. If you have a Netgear router, buy a Netgear extender. I find that often reduces the number of issues you could face.
#3 Update or Replace Your Router
If your WiFi keeps dropping or you are still having Wi-Fi issues in one part of your house, consider looking into getting a new router that has a Wi-Fi AC standard. You will see a huge improvement going to AC from the old N standard. It is not unusual for routers to go bad. Just like phones and computers at some point routers do break down.
Or before you go and buy a new router log into your current router and see if there is a update.
We hope that helped you fix your issue. If this still has not fixed your issue and you do not have slow speeds, you do have a strong Wi-Fi signal, and you tested your router then contact the service you are using for more help.
