T-Mobile’s Binge On: When throttling may not break the rules

T-Mobile CEO John Legere fired back at critics today in a blog post and video. Using the word “throttling” to describe T-Mobile’s video downgrading is just “semantics” and “bullshit,” he said. “What throttling is is slowing down data and removing customer control,” Legere said. “Binge On is neither of those things.” While Binge On streams video at lower bit rates, using less data, the data that is delivered to consumers isn’t slowed down, he said. – Jon Brodkin, Ars Technica
