Comcast, Verizon and AT&T plan on killing off Netflix with bandwidth fees

723

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 …
