You would think that a company that runs a nationwide communications network would like how the Internet works.
Do they think Netflix gets all of its bandwidth for free? Do they think that Netflix walks in to a data center and says "Hey, we want 2Gbps of uplink speed, and we dont want to pay for it". Do business customers come to comcast and say "I want 1Gbps of Metro Optical Ethernet uplink speed; and I donâ(TM)t want to pay for it". I think not.
the reason Comcast does not get money from Netflix, is because Comcast gets money from the people that want to use netflix. This is how the Internet has worked since the good old dialup modem days.
Of course the dialup modem days where the days when competition existed in the consumer Internet user marketplace. Now days all the consumer has to choose from is 30Mbps from Comcast or 7Mbps from a phone company. If a company offered the same level of service/speeds as Comcast but could stream Netflix and Amazon Instant Video better; Comcast would have an incentive to operate on a even playing field.
