Netflix Joins Internet Slowdown Protest
Netflix has joined the symbolic Internet Slowdown Day protest scheduled for Sept. 10.

Netflix argues that the FCC should also regulate paid peering agreements between it and Comcast, AT&T, Time Warner Cable and others as part of its new network neutrality rules.
