Netflix is under siege. I love how the ISPs in the United States are offloading the responsibility of building up and extending their networks to hold and maintain higher bandwidth traffic, while trying to offload the cost of that network expansion to another company— Netflix.
Comcast, Verizon and AT&T all have TV customers, all provide cable service and they all provide video-on-demand service for the customers. They’re pissed off because they can’t provide the level of video-on-demand service that Netflix has; all the time and effort that Netflix took in creating their video-on-demand service.
It’s clear to me that what’s going to happen, if the FCC doesn’t step in and do something about net neutrality, is that the big cable companies/ISPs are going to start offloading all the costs of their network maintenance on to Netflix because Netflix is using so much bandwidth.
