Netflix Cries Foul on Comcast

While Netflix agreed to pay off Internet service provider (ISP) Comcast to provide better service for customers, the movie and television streaming company isn’t happy about it—and it’s not staying silent. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings publicized a post on Netflix slamming Comcast and other big-name providers that “restrict, influence or otherwise meddle with the choices consumers make” through limiting high-speed Internet access aka as attacking net neutrality. He specifically criticizes Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T. Hasting notes “some big ISPs are extracting a toll because they can,” but “they should realize it is in their long term interest to back strong net neutrality.”
