T-Mobile’s Binge On is misleading users, study finds

While conducting trials with YouTube streaming, [Northeastern University] researchers found that the resolution dipped down to 360p, despite T-Mobile’s claims that Binge On streaming is 480p or higher. Even worse, “if a video provider does nothing, that is, neither opts into or out of participating with Binge On, its video traffic to T-Mobile subscribers who use Binge On will be given reduced bandwidth, but the subscribers will still be charged for the streaming.” – Jacob Siegal, BGR http://ift.tt/28P7AtC
