FCC To Investigate Netflix-Verizon Spat

Well, it looks like the FCC is getting involved in the spat between Netflix and Verizon. The quotes from each company are rather telling:

Netflix said Friday that it welcomes the FCC's effort "to bring more transparency in this area," adding: "Americans deserve to get the speed and quality of Internet access they pay for." Verizon said Friday Internet traffic exchange "has always been handled through commercial agreements," and that it's "hopeful that policy makers will recognize this fact." Comcast said it hopes the FCC's review will bring "full transparency" to interconnection issues and "enable full education as to how this market works."
