Netflix Chief Executive Reed Hastings on Thursday said Internet service providers should give content companies adequate network connections for free, and singled out Comcast for supporting "weak" internet traffic rules.
In February, Netflix struck a deal to pay Comcast for faster online delivery of its movies and TV shows through a practice known as interconnection, after customers complained about slow service.

Hastings called interconnection fees an "arbitrary tax" that the company would pay in certain cases to protect its customers' experience.
"Instead, they must provide sufficient access to their network without charge," Hastings wrote on the Netflix blog.
