Verizon made an enemy tonight

by Colin Nederkoorn

On a flight back to New York I read Level 3's assessment of the latest round of the Netflix vs Internet Provider debacle.

The summarized version is that basically Netflix is slow because Verizon refuses to add capacity to peer with Level 3. Fixing the situation would cost Verizon on the order of a few thousand (that's right thousand) dollars. Level 3 is even willing to foot the bill. But Verizon refuses.

This is dated information, but the video download speed test is amazing, and the information about bypass methods more so.
