Netflix vs net neutrality: Another ISP offers to prioritise traffic in return for cash

ZDNet - Dutch cable company Ziggo — recently acquired by competitor UPC for €10bn — is planning to charge video-on-demand providers additional fees to guarantee that its customers get high-quality access to their online TV services, Ziggo's CEO confirmed to ZDNet.

The measure is intended to provide a solution to the rising amount of bandwidth used by Dutch television audiences, which are increasingly opting for online streaming services like Netflix instead of traditional broadcast TV.
