Time to upgrade your internet speed.
AT&T or Verizon would both work.
Your internet speed must be absolute crap with it takes half an hour for a 3 min. video.
They have cheap plans of 20$ for a 5 mbps internet speed on AT&T -- sufficient for video watching.

You can check your current internet speed at www.speedtest.net

It has to do with the speed of the path you're getting to my friend's site, and there's nothing anyone can do to change that - the internet itself select the path.

Upgrade your service, make sure your modem cable from wall is no longer than 6 ft(ethernet cable can be long of course), change DNS server, reset router(if applicable), have their technician come out to test outside connection... Just a few thoughts.

This has nothing to do with your laptop. Simply pay for a faster internet subscription.
