For on-demand streams, Akamai doesn't work for me either, though I haven't tried SD streams. Last Top Gear episode stops after 10 sec whatever the provider
For live TV works as a charm.
This is where I am at with it. Live Streams work perfectly, on demand does not. The same is true if I use the 'BBC iPlayer' addon too, so I guess the issues lie with the BBC. I get big buffering issues on my Chromecast too. I am a UK resident and I am using 76Mbps fibre broadband.
BBC iPlayer appears to be temperamental at best, even using get_iplayer causes similar drop-outs. Like I said before, they are making changes to try and stop people easily accessing media outside of the iPlayer website or official apps for Android, iOS and Tivo.
I'm using 200/100 from within the UK and it still causes problems. Oddly enough, ~70/20 from Austria doesn't cause  as many issues - and I route that through my UK connection.
