Default [Q] Netflix streaming speed, 480p

Anyone experience this, I seem to never go above 480p when streaming Netflix
This occurs regardless of whether I'm connected to WiFi or cellular and I have plenty of bandwidth
Stream locks at 1750 kbps , I though you could get at least 720p on android, if not 1080p
I am rooted if that matters
