06:01 EDTVZ, NFLXVerizon strikes back at Netflix for 'PR stunt'
Verizon (VZ) commented on its public policy blog: "Reports from this morning have suggested that Netflix (NFLX) is engaging in a PR stunt in an attempt to shift blame to ISPs for the buffering that some of its customers may be experiencing. According to one journalistís tweet from last night, Netflix is displaying a message on the screen for users who experience buffering which says: 'The Verizon network is crowded right now.' This claim is not only inaccurate, it is deliberately misleading. The source of the problem is almost certainly NOT congestion in Verizonís network. Instead, the problem is most likely congestion on the connection that Netflix has chosen to use to reach Verizonís network. Of course, Netflix is solely responsible for choosing how their traffic is routed into any ISPís network. Some reporters seem to have bought into Netflixís claims without question, and some have conflated this dispute with net neutrality....It is sad that Netflix is willing to deliberately mislead its customers so they can be used as pawns in business negotiations and regulatory proceedings. It would be more accurate for Netflix's message screen to say: 'The path that we have chosen to reach Verizonís network is crowded right now.' However, that would highlight their responsibility for the problem." Reference Link

Wells Fargo notes trade publication Runway Girl Network posted an article about Verizon's (VZ) potential interest in Gogo.
