I pay Netflix $10/month for Content
I pay Verizon $60/month for Bandwidth
Guess who I expect to deliver on this issue?

You really should change your handle. There's nothing factual about your post.

Re: VPN to stream Netflix using FiOS.
It's not Netflix's job to try and hack around Verizon's attempts to extort them for protection money.

You have it reversed. The big three ISPs are waging war against Netflix because they can (and are big enough to feel entitled). The smaller ISPs don't have the same entitlement/monopoly mentality that AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon have.

Because any time Netflix moves to a non-congested route, they bring enough traffic with them to congest that route as well, and Verizon refuses to upgrade said route. Happened with Cogent. Now it's happening with Level3.

Re: a bit off on the numbers
said by jmn1207:I read though that doesn't mean it right that you have to use the windows 8 netflix app to get super HD, otherwise you're limited to Netflix's traditional HD of 3mbit.
No such limitations with Windows 7, but as has been mentioned above, there are other factors that could contribute to the 3000 kbps limit.

said by existenz:I wish they would stream 1080p at 15Mbps. I can afford the speed, but not the 4K TV. At least not a big 4K TV.
Netflix 4K will supposedly use about 15Mbps.

He better watch it.
If he tries to get the FCC to do something, Verizon might have massive hard drive failures...

What Mr. Colin Nederkoorn has done is great. There is no more definitive proof than his experiment. Verizon is causing the Netflix streaming problem. You cannot get any better evidence. Add in the Level 3 research and Verizon is guilty of willfully degrading Netflix streaming.

Oh Karl, you imp....
.... clearly that's something the FCC's investigation can uncover in short order without ambiguous waffling, right?
You're just messin' with us, aren't you?
