Netflix's CEO Reed Hastings on Net Neutrality, Blames Large ISPs For Problem

KindMind (897865) writes | about a month and a half ago


KindMind (897865) writes "On Wired, Reed Hastings (Netflix's CEO) has his take on net neutrality. He lays the problem at the feet of the large ISPs. He says "It's worth noting that Netflix connects directly with hundreds of ISPs globally, and 99 percent of those agreements don't involve access fees. It is only a handful of the largest U.S. ISPs, which control the majority of consumer connections, demanding this toll. Why would more profitable, larger companies charge for connections and capacity that smaller companies provide for free? Because they can.""

the purpose of business is to make its' shareholders Money. Failing to do so, everywhere it can, could be considered criminal; certainly NOT in the best interests of the business. - I'm just saying.

I started to read a book my boss had on his desk about being a success in business, the first page said something like "You have to be an a$$hole if you want to be a success" It's true, but I won't be following that example.
