Earlier in July I stumbled upon an interesting story from Mark Taylor at Level 3 regarding a foot-in-mouth moment from David Young, Vice President of Regulatory Affairs at Verizon. It follows David Young’s blog post claiming that it’s Netflix’s fault for network congestion when being delivered to the Verizon network (After the traffic was requested BY Verizon customers). Mark gives a pretty well written and easy to understand response on why that is simply not true. You can see from the above image that Level 3 is willing to do their part of lessening congestion at interconnect points but Verizon is refusing. Are poor interconnection agreements between large carriers causing buffering during your Netflix ‘n Chill time? Check out the blog post below. (Link has since died, replaced with PDF below)
