Netflix: We're not using Internet fast lanes

Grant Gross | Jan. 6, 2015
Netflix, accused of taking advantage of Internet fast lanes while calling on the U.S. Federal Communications Commission to prohibit them, has defended its practice of signing traffic peering agreements with large broadband providers.

Netflix doesn't want paid fast lanes, Florance wrote Monday. "A large part of the debate about net neutrality is focused on ensuring it stays that way," he wrote. "If ISPs are allowed to sell fast lanes, competition for various Internet sites and services will become less about the value of what's offered and more about who can pay the most to deliver it faster. It would be the very opposite environment than the one the Internet created."
