Verizon isn't slowing Netflix, analyst says
If you've noticed a recent slowdown in your Netflix service, it doesn't have anything to do with Verizon, according to a JPMorgan Chase analyst who says he's had conversations with the company.
Doug Anmuth said Netflix chief Reed Hastings is confident Internet providers won't dare provoke the wrath of users by slowing down access. Re/code, a tech website, said Netflix hasn't seen anything to suggest Verizon is throttling bandwidth.
An increased volume of data could be to blame. Netflix accounts for up to a third of North American Internet traffic at peak hours.
