iPhone 6 that I have jailbroke.
Since then, whenever I try to load a video (from safari or Instagram) it buffers like crazy or won't play at all.
Any thoughts?

Try resetting your network settings.

In the Settings app, go to General > Reset > Reset Network Settings

Tried it. No significant improvement.
Even a 6 sec video clip from bleacher report has trouble playing. This sucks!
Any other ideas? Or should I just start slowly deleting Cydia tweaks?

List your Cydia installs first. We might be able to find a culprit. Do you have any video tweaks from Cydia installed?

I have deleted a few things to try to find the culprit.
Now I have springtomize, mywi, fake carrier, f.lux, activator.
I recently deleted callbar and turned off a bunch of tweaks on springtomize.
I'm desperate. I don't want to remove cydia but I think I might have to.

Does it work in safe mode? If so, go back out of safe mode and remove all of your tweaks and test it. If it still works, start adding them back one by one testing in between. Do not remove Cydia.

Just did some speed test. It looks like it's normal with wifi (35 Mbps) but without wifi it's 0.5?

If it does the same thing in safe mode, removing the tweaks may not fix it. Try resetting all settings.

Do I need to back up the phone before that?
Always keep your phone backed up. In this case, however, you're going to have to put the settings back in manually. It shouldn't take more than ten minutes.

Does this happen on WiFi and cellular? How are your speed tests?

ok...so I removed cydia and everything, and within a day, the speed returned to normal.
So then I JB the phone again two weeks ago. everything was going fine, normal download speeds until today. Now I am having the same problems with download speed of 0.5 on cellular. I haven't installed or updated any JB apps/tweaks in this time. I have the following on my phone
iPod touch secure
mew seek
springtomize

Europa or anyone else, can you help me or give me some suggestions?

Are you on an unlimited plan and getting throttled by AT&T?
