The battle rages on between Netflix and the country's biggest Internet service providers. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said in a blog post Thursday that the company will pay more ISPs to ensure a good customer experience, but slammed those providers for "extracting a toll because they can." It's the latest in a fight over whether Netflix and other data-heavy services should have to shoulder part of the cost of getting that content to customers.
