Netflix swallows yet another bitter pill, inks peering deal with TWC

Genuine question (and maybe that's not the point of the article).

But is netflix making backend deals with telco/isp in violation with net neutrality ?

I thought net neutrality was telco/ISP not prioritizing any traffic that flows THRU them. But if a faster link (/a local cache on ISP premises) exists betweem my server and ISP, I don't see how it violates net neutrality.

Can someone please explain ?

Earnestly.
