Re: [Rant] Netflix Speeds are Terrible
Your analogy kind a sux, as in gas you pay your Station for gas. With netflix you pay netflix for content and only pay comcast to deliver it. If you want to use a gas analogy it would be more like you blaming the truck that delivers the gas to the station for bad gas. All providers are having problems delivering the gas in netflixs case.
Yes, and no. I pay Comcast for the ability to access the content I want to access on the internet. They're not delivering that because they're also trying to charge Netflix's CDN more to allow them to send me the content. The bottleneck isn't Netflix, it's Comcast's peering arrangement. It may not be the best analogy, but it's not the worst.
