If I understand your post correctly, I think the most likely source of your frustration (slow responding commands) is an overloaded WiFi signal. If you are using a public signal, the results speak for themselves. If you have your own home WiFi, you need to be sure it is not an open one. Secure it with a password to ensure no one is piggy backing on it.

If you are piggy backing on someone else's open WiFi- well, there ya go. May have to get your own.

Is the issue when using carrier data? How fast is your carrier data otherwise?

It may be a bad signal lock on a tower that causes the phone to constantly shift between data speeds. I.E.: 2G<->3G, or 3G<->LTE

Test this by going to an area where you see a good steady lock on signal at the same data speed and try streaming from there to see if it is smoother.

If you need further assistance, have more detail to share or more questions to ask: please join the site so you can reply in this thread.
