There was the time that streaming on Netflix by Comcast customers became 
painfully slow to nonexistent (prime time) ... until Netflix broke down 
and became a direct customer of Comcast so Netflix servers would feed 
Comcast instead of using a separate interconnect to send streams to 
Comcast customers.

That may have been more business rules (naturally each side played up 
its side and downplayed the other side until they had finally signed a 
contract and Netflix servers had direct connections to Comcast).
