A real example of how the death of net neutrality will impact your internet experience.

Since Netflix gave into Comcast’s demands for payment in exchange for a promise to deliver movies smoothly over the Internet to Netflix’s customers, speeds on Comcast for Netflix users have rocketed upward. Speeds on the larger service providers have been decreasing steadilysince last fall, but following the deal, Comcast restored all the speed that Netflix had lost and much more in the space of a couple of months.

Can you explain why many of these guys degrade and improve together? Is Comcast throttling Netflix to ATT and Verizon?
