Time Warner Cable and other ISPs Bandwidth throttling YouTube and Vimeo video

Bandwidth throttling on Youtube and Vimeo with Time Warner Cable
"A test where one Youtube HD video and one Vimeo HD video were loaded with two different internet connections (bench marking the connections using speedtest.net before the tests) One connection was a Time Warner Cable Internet service rated for 30Mbps down, 5Mpbs up. These speeds were verified by speedtest.net. I can also verify these speeds are consistent based on things I do like download large games from Steam. The other connection was a Verizon 4G iPhone set up as a Personal Hot Spot. LTE bandwidth in my home ranges from 15-40Mbps down and 4-25Mbps up whenever I do speed tests.
