I suppose it just verifies internet speed throttling by isp's
Netflix is just falling for the game,
Movie files are very large doesn't really go well when you might have a bare minimum internet plan,

Comcast was NOT slowing the traffic for Netflix. The connection from Netflix data center to Comcast ran through another vendor and that link was getting overloaded. This deal bypasses the other vendor and hooks Comcast directly to the Netflix data centers.

In exchange for payment, Netflix will get direct access to Comcast's broadband network,
Netflix was using Internet middlemen Cogent Communications CCOI -0.10% as a "primary" route into Comcast, a person familiar with the matter has said. That connection was starting to become overwhelmed with Netflix traffic, congesting traffic and leading to slower Netflix streams for Comcast Internet users, people familiar with the matter said.
So this crap about net neutrality and slowing traffic is pure BS.
