Corporate Greed: How Verizon is Sticking It To Their Customers, And Why They Don’t Care…

Right now you feel like watching a movie so you decide to start up your XBox and watch a little Netflix, but for some reason it’s really slow, and it seems to stutter a lot. You assume it’s just some intermittent problem with Netflix, you’ll try later and it will probably work just fine. Well you are only partially right about this one. In fact, it is an intermittent problem, but it’s not really a problem with Netflix, rather it’s a problem with Verizon.

And I know what you are thinking, but I have FIOS, that doesn’t make sense. We all turn on our televisions and get inundated with speed upgrade requests, and commercials about Verizon FIOS being the fastest. I’ve even seen commercials from Verizon suggesting that video is so much faster when you upgrade from XFinity to Verizon FIOS.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love FIOS, and wouldn’t recommend any other kind of ISP service if it’s available, but there are some things they are doing right now that you may not know about, and it’s shocking to think this is even legal.
