FCC Looking Into Netflix’s Complaint Against Comcast Caps

Netflix CEO’s Comcast Complaints Draw in FCC – Wall Street Journal

Comcast’s logic for its policy reflects how the Xfinity video gets to consumer homes. It travels over what the FCC calls a “specialized service,” which means it moves via Internet protocol from a server owned by Comcast over its cable network and into your home. In other words, it is traveling over a private, managed network. Comcast’s cable TV service also travels over a managed network, but in a different, compressed video format. But Netflix movies or Hulu TV shows are traveling over the public Internet.


The FCC said late Monday it “takes seriously any allegations of violations of our open Internet rules.”
