After spending much time of my hard earned leisure time investiging why my Netflix streaming performance has been so terrible, I've finally discovered the reason is Verizon. Given I stream content as a primary way of viewing, I will be cancelling my Triple Play and go back to past providers for phone, TV and internet. Way to go Verizon. Hope many more follow me.

Glad to hear you are switching. Verizon really turned what was by far the best ISP out there into one that is rather poor.

Sorry to hear you spent a lot of time figuring out. The problems with Verizon are well documented here on the forums and just about every tech site out there (even appearing on mainstream news sites now)

Well I just joint the forums yesterday as part of th investigation and was unaware of the rest of it. Falls under the category of "you don't know what you don't know".

With which provider will you replace Verizon?  In my location the only other choice is TWC.

In my location I will likely go with Comcast for the ISP. DirecTV for TV and TBD for phone should I keep a landline.

Comcast and Netflix struck a deal.  Maybe Verizon will too.
