The New York Times is reporting that Comcast, in a huge move, is charging Level 3, (the company responsible for the process of actually getting Netflix movies and television shows transmitted) huge fees due to the amount of traffic they've generated.
From the article:
This brings up a huge set of issues dealing with Net Neutrality, for as one can see, this puts Netflix at a huge competitive disadvantage and allows Comcast to easily move ahead with their own streaming services (at lower prices).
Please support Netflix and support Net Neutrality! I love Netflix streaming and I know you do too. This is a threat to Netflix, Netflix Watch Instant streaming, and the Internet as a whole. If we want the Internet to continue being a place where companies like Netflix can still exist, we must hope that Comcast retracts these fees.
