reply to IPPlanMan PS It is one thing to absorb incremental bi-directional Internet traffic (part of your service and traffic exchange between networks). It is another thing to have something that drives a huge uni-directional addition to your infrastructure cost.
Netflix is good, I just think that Netflix should have some cost burden similar to how On-Demand network costs are paid for internally. Either put it in the price or charge separately. Should be the same playing field and Netflix should not get anything special here.

You honestly are dense enough to think that Netflix is not paying for its costs?
They do pay for their bandwidth and the people viewing it pay for their home internet connection. Why should Netflix have to pay protection racket money to the ISPs when they already rack up a bandwidth bill. -- [65 Arcanist]Filan(High Elf) Zone: Broadband Reports
