It's interesting that once they figured out that ISP's aren't going to foot the bill for Netflix's extra network usage, and they started to have to "work" towards keeping "their" customers happy, they have something to complain about.
It's not Netflix's extra network usage, it's the user's extra network usage, because the user chose to use the service. Netflix pays for their connection to the internet on their end, I pay for my connection on my end. We're both paying our parts, so why should ISP's be allowed to charge double for the same bit?
Also, this has been continuously shown to be a ploy to strangle Netflix and similar services, because they fear the dying out of traditional television services. When a company, such as AT&T, can supply unlimited IPTV, then technically they can provide unlimited internet for non-television applications with minimal difference in cost.
