When Unlimited Isn't

Netflix is a service I have used myself. Since I was recovering from surgery at the time, I got to experience throttling in action. Whatever consumers think of it, this would appear to be a necessary practice. Shipping movies costs money, and if you ship enough to one person, then said person's subscription fee essentially vanishes. I don't really begrudge Netflix their business model. They still have a better selection than my local video store. Then again, I'm not an active subscriber at the moment either.
