long pause in internet stream

  1. I have been getting some long pauses in my internet stream lately. I am currently using the optimum boost package. I never had any problems before, but the past two weeks have been sub par.

    any suggestions? my squak box is pausing in mid sentence and my quotes freeze for a couple seconds.

    any help would greatly be appreciated.
