- OTTs are afraid ISPs will extort money from them, hence claim strong NN regulation is needed.
- Netflix turned this upside down and hinted at being able to charge ISPs - but added that it won't.
- Now, Time Warner Cable appears to be afraid of being charged by OTTs.
- Comcast came out as a defender of NN regulation.
- Everybody is in favour of weak NN.
- ISPs and OTTs both have bargaining power.
Conclusion: all regulators need to do is:
- Keep an eye on weak NN not being violated.
- Make sure peering is made free (in Google's words: it's a win-win-win not to charge for peering), as long as OTTs and ISPs do their utmost to interconnect in such a way that traffic is not hindered, i.e. OTTs deliver traffic at the ISP and ISPs add capacity when needed.
