I think this stuff degrades into conspiracy theory often enough.  While I
don't discount the possibility of collusion, I don't give these
people/groups credit enough to pull of a mass scale conspiracy either....
If netflix is jammed down to small of a pipe at an ISP, that's more likely
(IMO...) disorganization or incompetence or disinterest over conspiracy.
 I feel the same about government in general...
