Reuters Business Report - If your Netflix video is taking much longer to load, you can blame Verizon, among others. The Wall Street Journal reports the problem is particularly acute on Verizon's fiber optic FiOS service. Netflix claims its average prime-time speed on Verizon dropped by 14 percent last month.
The paper says the providers have had the upper hand in similar disputes. Google, Facebook, and Microsoft have begun paying them for connecting to their networks.
Neither side was winning investors this morning. Shares of Netlix fell at the start of trade. So did those of the providers.
