Netflix signs traffic deal with Verizon
Now that Net Neutrality is dead in the United States, the agreements for preferential traffic will start to be signed.

Now, with the FCC signaling the opening of the doors for the ISP to start prioritizing traffic as they see fit, Netflix may not have another option but pay the ISPs to allow them to operate.
