T-Mobile's Binge On and Net Neutrality
I had a random driving thought the other day when I heard a T-Mobile commercial further pumping up their Binge On offering. How does this play into Net Neutrality?
Then I saw this meme posted on Reddit today:
Is T-Mo setting a negative precedence that I am not seeing because I benefit from it currently? I've never really ever dove into Net Neutrality because I have always wrote off the negatives and impossible. I believe that a business who asked for users to pay for preferential speeds to certain sites would never thrive. But T-Mobile is not doing that, right? They are giving away the preferential treatment.
For any not familiar, Binge On allows users to stream media from services like YouTube, Hulu, and Netflix without the data usage counting towards their usage for the month. For example my T-Mobile plan gives each user 6gb of 4G LTE data usage and then all usage goes down to slower speed. Except for the services supported by Binge On.
Interested in thoughts from different angles. What are your thoughts about Binge On?
