buffering on iphone while not on wifi

this just started a couple months ago, when I'm away from wifi watching dish anywhere on my iphone it buffers, breaks up, pauses and is becoming very annoying. before this it worked great, my download speed on my phone is 22 to 28 mbps.

now when I'm on wifi at 6mbps it works great again. I have a Hopper 3 with sling and like I said earlier this just started doing this recently, I have deleted my Dish anywhere app and re-installed it, but no changes. I have the latest software on my phone. Any suggestions?

Check to see if your phone or provider has speed limits for streaming services, especially competing streaming services. For instance, ATT will slow down streams from competing services, whether direct or indirect.

Good idea, any hints on how I do that, I have service through Straight Talk, have plenty of data to use, and this just started a couple of months ago.

Honestly, I would start by calling straight talk and ask them. They may also limit the size of the data transmitted over a short period of time.
