Carriers already get paid for every bit of data that flows through their tubes. Trying to charge Netflix multiple times for the same thing would be like paying for shipping at Amazon and when the UPS truck shows up the driver says he won’t give you the package unless you pay him too. When people talk about Netflix being subsidized, I think what they mean is how, without usage based pricing, those who aren’t subscribed to Netflix are subsidizing the broadband costs for those who are.
