If the traffic was heavily tilted from Cogent to Comcast, it's not Comcast's responsibility to upgrade without charging more. If they demand paid transit, people will still complain about toll roads and "paid priority" while Comcast has to babysit the two connections and deal with billing disputes based on what amounts to overflow charges.

Netflix can't get away with the modern day "babe in the woods" game. They knew exactly what they were doing when they selected their transit provider.

Why should ISP/last mile providers have to absorb or pass along the costs of upgrading their networks to satisfy the demands of the paying customer of another ISP?

Essentially all customers at ISPs must subsidize the desires of the customers who like to access streaming providers.

Netflix and others who operate like this are the bad guys and they full well know it.
