NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Netflix (NFLX), often the biggest driver of Internet traffic on any given night, isn't worried about usage-based broadband charges as Internet service providers such as Time Warner Cable (TWC), Verizon (VZ) and Comcast (CMCSA) toy with new broadband pricing plans.
Neftlix Chief Financial Officer David Wells said at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia conference the streaming video service could handle a pricing regime where ISPs charge consumers for their usage. Already most wireless carriers charge consumers for their data usage in high-end smartphone plans.
Wells also said usage-based Internet pricing may be an unsuccessful strategy for ISPs.
