National Assembly presses Netflix to pay net usage fee amid a surge in traffic Updated: 2021-10-05 17:08:00 KST

Shows like "Squid Game" have caused an explosive surge in broadband traffic for South Korean ISPs.
Today, lawmakers demanded that Netflix be made to compensate local broadband networks for the high cost of delivering its services.
As part of a regular government audit, the National Assembly on Tuesday grilled the Korea Communications Commission about what steps it can take to make Netflix pay up.
Lawmakers on the media committee said that as of September, Netflix traffic amounted to one-thousand -two-hundred gigabits of data per second a 24-fold increase from May 2018.
Netflix is in a protracted legal battle with the local carrier SK Broadband, which just last week filed a claim in court demanding payment and said Netflix has not returned to negotiations.
