Throttling back of 4G on O2 PAYG

I've noticed recently that watching video e.g YouTube is becoming almost impossible with a good 4G signal in almost every location I've tried. Same locations where I've had no problems in the past.

Has anyone else noticed this? Is O2 throttling 4G back to 'make way' for 5G?

Try 3g as sometimes quicker in busy areas. 

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Interesting idea, will try that. I'd prefer the 4G to work as it should. We both upgraded to the £30 100Gb deal but we are hardly using any of it due to the poor speeds. Maybe it would be better to go back to the £15 deal or try another provider.
