Indie ISP to Netflix: Give it a rest about 'net neutrality' – and get your checkbook out

Re: @Al Jones

Netflix is helping Lariat.net by providing content that is enticing enough that people want to sign up to Lariat.net so that they can get access to Netflix. The money that that new user pays splits about 80-20 in Lariat.nets favor.

There's no question that delivery of broadband to more widely dispersed populations, further from exchange points has different economies than delivering service in denser urban environments. But as I said, that's Lariat.net's business model, not Netflix's business model.

By the way, I should have pointed out that I don't even have a Netflix subscription.
