A quick Google www.google.com.au...
shows there are others who have this problem as well. A look at my own ISP's knowledge-base shows similar issues.
In my ISP'S case they were throttling youtube traffic and how much cache they had.
Maybe verizon has limited the amount of youtube cache they keep. There could also be "contention"/congestion in the back haul routing from the ISP.
If you say everything else is good well this will be a very hard problem to resolve from your end. May even be hard for verizon to solve as well
because they "buy" access and bandwidth at the cheapest rate and have little or no control over that.
All I can suggest to you at this stage is to just make sure it is not browser/flash related by downloading another browser. Something different to
what you use now e.g Firefox or Chrome just as long as it is different to the one you currently use and don't use a browser in a different "wrapper"
that just uses the same settings base. Try portableapps.com...
to get one as being portable it does not "install" and just runs from executable.
Even then it is long shot!
I know it is probably a royal pain in the you know what but try another device/phone/pc in your current location but again a very long shot
You could try the youtube speed test tool here www.youtube.com...
I must say I had similar issues occasionally when I was on the older DSL but nothing like you by the sounds. it improved drastically when I moved to
ADSL2+ but even then during peak times very rarely though it does the same thing.
Sorry I can't help anymore. I'm too far way!
