Net Neutrality Repeal Worries Niche Streaming Services

Efe Cakarel, the founder and CEO of U.K.-headquartered film streaming service MUBI that also operates in the U.S., says his concern isn’t competition from Netflix as much as it is the lack of competition among the big ISPs. “Today, privileged companies like Netflix already benefit from what are essentially internet fast lanes, and this has been the case for years,” he explains. “The real issue is that such a small number of ISPs now control the pipes that reach out to U.S. customers. My real worry is that the Comcasts and Verizons are becoming too big and too powerful.” – Natalie Jarvey, The Hollywood Reporter
