Squid game became so popular that the South Korean Internet service provider SK Broadband sued Netflix to pay for costs from increased network traffic and maintenance work because of the surge in viewers. The series which placed No. 1 in over 90 countries on Netflix has created network traffic according to South Korean Internet Service Provider SK Broadband.But the content platforms don’t pay for internet network usage even though the consumers access platforms with the Internet.
Netflix urges that their work finishes with creating content and leaving it to be accessed by viewers but is not bound to pay internet usage costs. The same goes for platforms like YouTube because it has most of the traffic produced from foreign content.
We don’t know if Netflix is going to pay internet usage costs or not.
