Netflix peering deal with Verizon
April 29, 2014
Netflix said: ‘We have reached an interconnect arrangement with Verizon that we hope will improve performance for our joint customers over the coming months.’
Netflix entered a paid peering deal with Comcast in February after subscribers saw average streaming speeds over Comcast’s network decline for months. Netflix pays Comcast money to facilitate direct interconnection between the video service and Comcast’s network. Comcast customers have seen significant Netflix streaming quality increases as a result.
