Probably noone....... at least not without compromising and first
peering with Netflix.

It would be interesting if Google, Wikimedia, CBS/ABC, CNN, Walmart,
Espn, Salesforce, BoFa,, Dropbox, Paypal, Netflix,
Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Yahoo, Ebay,,
Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, Reddit, Forbes, Zillow,   formed a
little club and said

"OK, Tier1.. providers.. we're not paying you guys for transit
anymore; your customers want our stuff  and will consider their
internet service DOWN if they can't get it.   You are going to pay us
for a fast lane to our content now.  If you want it,  please start
sending us your bids, now."
