If I understood correctly:

    - you have two ISP connections at home
    - you ran some random Youtube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ)
    - this video took X seconds to start playing
    - you switched to the other ISP, and ran the same video
    - this video took Y seconds to start playing
    - apparently, Y is much smaller than X

And you are wondering why Y takes less time than X? I would bet you that
there is some caching going on there, probably at more than one level.
