Netflix Has Been Secretly Slowing Down Your Videos For The Past Five Years

More than half of all U.S. households with broadband subscribe to Netflix, according to Parks Associates. Competitors such as Amazon video are in a quarter of broadband households and Hulu is in about 15%.

"We're at a point where there's so much video traffic going across the Internet," said Glenn Hower, a research analyst for Parks Associates. "It's constantly taxing the networks and at some point, someone's going to have to figure it out, whether it's paying to upgrade it or service providers charging for fast lanes."
