extremely slow downloading and streaming

Hi I have a bb 8520 but the speed on it is ridiculously slow only when I try and download or stream videos, to be exact it downloads at a speed of 1kb/sec sometimes less and when I attempt to play media on the internet it freezes or takes 20mins before "buffering" goes away then another 10mins for it to load. However, if I change my browser settings off the BIS setting and onto my normal network settings then it downloads at the speed it should download, is this a problem with blackberry or what, can anyone help please its driving me crazy

Re: extremely slow downloading and streaming
