Problem: Most stream configurations I've seen say to use ~80% of your upload as max bitrate but I can only use ~20% of my upload before my stream starts dropping frames and my latency spikes and holds at ~500 ms.
I have a Netgear N900 wireless router
There are ~2 other people that use the internet along with me but only browsing like Facebook and stuff and they warn me before hand if they download stuff.
In task manager my CPU usage never rises above 60% and my physical memory never goes above 70%. My network utilization never goes above 20% when I "try" to stream and stays below 5% elsewhere.

Question: How can I use more of my internet (if that's the correct way of saying that)?
Extra: I read that Comcast (my provider) might throttle my speeds during peak hours but this is consistent during all parts of the day. I'm also thinking of upgrading to a better plan to 50/12 for just a little bit more (on one of the grandfather plans), would that be worth it?
