Earlier this year we saw Netflix ink its first agreement after reports emerged that its users were being throttled by ISPs. Under the agreement Netflix pays an undisclosed amount directly to the ISP so that its users are not throttled and they get the streaming experience that they expect from it. The online streaming giant has now signed a similar agreement with Time Warner Cable hoping to bring its subscribers on that particular ISP on faster lanes that offer significantly better connection speed to its servers.
