Proof of ISP fuckery
See this article providing evidence that according to M-LAB, a nonprofit research consortium: "Verizon and Comcast, as well as Time Warner Cable, CenturyLink, and AT&T, are intentionally squeezing data coming from some incoming networks — in particular, networks associated with Netflix, which competes with these companies in video entertainment. Customers of these eyeball networks are getting degraded service that cannot be explained by anything other than business decisions." It's not speculation that this sort of thing might happen; it's happened and will only continue to get worse with the new FCC rules. See the previous post for the new petition on the issue.
