Interesting test, but...
But it seems that they may be having some issues in serving people from the wrong data center as well. Whenever I decide to watch a little netflix I get served from their east coast data centers, and I'm located in the Los Angeles county area, on the west coast, in California. It could artificially constrain the available bandwidth to me and others, though, it still does not affect me very much since I have about 58 Mb/s bandwidth available.
