The companies say they have reached a partnership to release joint products and work together on artificial intelligence.
South Korean internet service provider SK Broadband and Netflix have announced they will end all lawsuits against each other after a dispute over whether Netflix should pay costs from increased network traffic and labor to continue.
SK Broadband and parent SK Telecom said in a joint Netflix statement on Monday that they have agreed to a partnership to release joint products and find ways to use artificial intelligence (AI) products developed by SK .
“Going forward, SK Broadband and Netflix will end all disputes in signing the current partnership, and work together as partners for the future,” the statement said.
Spokespeople for Netflix and SK Broadband said both had withdrawn their cases.
The two sides have been in a legal dispute since 2020 over whether content providers who generate large volumes of traffic should pay for using the network, or whether that would go against the principle of “net neutrality” and lead to more high costs for consumers.
