Netflix's mobile throttling raises ire of AT&T, American Cable Association

Netflix's (NASDAQ: NFLX) admission of lowering video resolution on wireless networks from AT&T (NYSE: T) and Verizon (NYSE: VZ) without customer consent has drawn fire from AT&T and the American Cable Association (ACA).

"We're outraged to learn that Netflix is apparently throttling video for their AT&T customers without their knowledge or consent," said Jim Cicconi, AT&T's senior executive VP of external and legislative affairs, in a statement.

Meanwhile, ACA asked the FCC to investigate "edge practices," and said it is "disappointed, but not surprised, that Netflix used its immunity from the FCC's net neutrality rules to engage in this practice." Article
