Netflix blames operators for slow service

American Netflix users have complained about the slowness of the service, which tries to solve the problem by decreasing the resolution of the videos to avoid crashes. In parallel to this, the company decided to adopt a clearer strategy to get rid of the criticisms: advertise on the computer screen that the fault of the person providing the connection.

In the above capture, for example, the lack of signal credited to Verizion. Besides it, other companies in the sector have been accused by users in the United States of practicing “traffic shaping”, that is, releasing a band smaller than the one that was contracted. As Netflix requires a lot (around 5-7 Mbps for movies in HD), operators slow down the signal.
