Comcast purposely slowed video streaming traffic between Netflix and Comcast’s own customers in order to extort money from Netflix. Netflix gave in to the extortion to preserve its customer base. They had to make up for that money some how, and now they are raising their price. Comcast basically increased their profits on the backs of all Netflix subscribers. A well written net neutrality law could prevent this kind of extortion and protect consumers.
