Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said he was highly skeptical of telecoms companies’ plans to charge for “specialized services” offering superior Internet access for those who pay—the so-called net neutrality issue. “The only reason to have a fast lane is if the other lane is not very good,” he said.
“What net neutrality represents is freedom from the old world, where choices were limited, to a new world of more and better choices,” Mr. Hastings added." 'via Blog this'
