I've been suffering chronic issues just as you described them (stopping, stuttering, halting, not loading...) and have tried everything short of getting a better GPU (which isn't really my problem) and signing up for a VPN (to avoid throttling).

After using Google namebench to find an ideal DNS setting, things have improved (namebench says by 300% ) but while on campus my connectivity to Crunchyroll is far more sensitive to local traffic than, say, Youtube. During the down time, I might be lucky enough to stream 1080p, but normally I have to stick to 720p--which is still a huge improvement from not even being able to stream SD or even load the video at the worst of times.

After reading some of that article, I guess I shouldn't be surprised by the political interrelationships between ISPs, and of course the life-blood of the corporate world $$$$

For a cynic, I'm surprised by my own naivety sometimes.

Edit: on the bright side, this whole ordeal has taught me a bit more about computer networking.
