Choppy playback of some series like The Da Vinci Demons

I'm trying to watch the serie The Da Vinci Demons via On Demand on my PC, but the stream is so laggy, its barely watchable.


After 10 to 15 seconds it starts to buffer. I have to pause the video and wait , after a while unpause and it plays for about 30 seconds adn then starts buffering again.


I've found the following: 


Its apparantly a problem with some comcast server(s).


For example i traced the stream with problems (all Da vinci demons episodes) to the following server: 

odol-atswec-bos-13.woburn.ma.boston.comcast.net. Here i get an average of about 200 kb/sec download speed. Way to low for decent high quality stream.


If a take another stream. eg. Black Sails i get a connection to odol-atsec-bos-09.needham.ma.boston.comcast.net where i get a reasonable 3 mb/sec download speed, which is adequate for high quality streams.


So it looks like the datacenter is having serious bandwidth issues in Woburn.
