Default stop buffering on my phone

When I'm trying to watch videos, my phone buffers a lot. Is there a way to make it load faster? Any suggestions? I was told wifi would help. Is that true?
I own a metroPCS android.

How are you connected to the Internet if not via WiFi? 3G? Sorry, but no go.

You need to be connected to a WiFi hotspot with decent bandwidth and connectivity.

Edit: So MetroPCS supports 4G LTE. Does your phone support 4G? In that case, that should have worked... except that MetroPCS's wireless network may or may not have a good connectivity with YouTube or wherever are you watching videos.

Also, if you're watching YouTube videos... sometimes you may find poor transfer rates, mainly because of bandwidth congestion on YouTube's end. I blame the advertisers.

If your using 3g or 4g, it is probably slower than if you have wifi. Another tip is to close some of your running programs, which i think is under settings>apps and then theres a tab that says "running"
