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

Your instincts are correct.

Netflix has to fairly share costs for the dedicated interconnection. It's a matter for fair negotiation, not a campaign based on misinformation. E.g. that whole "3 Mbps" nonsense "when I'm paying for 30...".

That said, if specific telcos are cheating, then call them out. With facts. I think that they did so in one case. Lawsuits are reasonable in the worst case.

Netflix - purveyor of brain pablum. Explains a lot.
