Verizon FiOS Netflix Throttling

Video proof of Verizon throttling Netflix
There is no question that Verizon is pulling this BS in Brooklyn too - and then constantly trying to upsell faster "premium" internet service. 

When will the regulatory authorities address this?
"In this infuriating video, Colin Nederkoorn records his computer streaming Netflix's test video over his Verizon FiOS connection. Then, via a VPN on the same home network, he receives a nearly ten-times faster stream."

Just last night we were trying to watch The Office on Netflix.  No other streams going, no other internet access period - and several times the stream was delayed.  This really is abusive behavior, and it is demonstrably worse than what I believed to be unconscionably bad service from Time Warner.
