Resolve Netflix traffic issues

Message 1 of 3

Seems Level 3 is claiming Verizon is purposely letting the network get saturated.

 

See http://blog.level3.com/global-connectivity/verizons-accidental-mea-culpa

 

From above link: "I can confirm that Level 3 is not the party refusing to add that capacity. In fact, Level 3 has asked Verizon for a long time to add interconnection capacity and to deliver the traffic its customers are requesting from our customers, but Verizon refuses."

 

If the above is a misrepresentation then Verizon should sue Level 3 and Netflix and get the above information removed along with resolving the performance issues.

 

Seeing these types of posts makes customers like me quite angry that we are not getting the service we are paying for!

And more bad Verizon reviews.  People like myself are already start to leaving FIOS.  How can FIOS let this continue?

 

See the link below that shows that going through a VPN and adding more server hops actually makes the Netflix connection much faster http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:PSbaw5MzAY8J:iamnotaprogrammer.com/Verizon-Fios...

I had to use the google cache link since either the blog server or down or Verizon appears to be blocking the website.

I have the FiOS 75/75 (or maybe the one faster not sure) and Netflix is abysmally slow. This has been going on for a long time now and tbh I thought they would just sort it out. If this persists FiOS would lose a long time customer with a bill of $180+/month.

 

I can't justify paying for faster internet and watching load screens and I'm sure I'm not alone.
