Re: Shaw no support new Super HD from Netflix, boo!

I don't have intimate knowledge of the situation but I would suspect that the Open Connect Network is a peering agreement with providers.

Essentially at peering locations (Major telecommunication hubs) providers will make direct connections with provider networks.

Amazon, Google, Facebook, Netflix -- all companies make these peering agreements with each other where they can share data traffic across their networks without incurring the additional cost of involving a third party transit provider.

It improves the quality of service for the ISP's customers and lowers their cost to provide content.
