I would love to see the Verizon blog response on that...

<best Verizon voice> There appears to be no congestion within the 
Verizon network, but there is congestion in this little red area where 
the Verizon user connects to the Verizon network. The Verizon customer

her to send traffic to Netflix at the requested rate. The customer is 
dropping packets... not us.</end Verizon voice>
