|By:, SA News Editor

Netflix (NFLX) subscribers have been experiencing a slowdown in the speed of their video streaming following a dispute between the company and broadband providers over how much Netflix content they should transport without receiving extra fees.

The problem is especially noticeable on Verizon Communications' (VZ) fiber-optic FiOS service, where average prime-time speeds fell 14% in January.
