Carriers regularly throttle video streaming services, new study finds
Some students in the Northeastern University of Massachusetts just found out that carriers are throttling video streaming services through an app called Wehe that analyzes internet speeds. In the US AT&T throttles Netflix 70% of the time and YouTube 74% of the time other apps like Amazon Prime Video aren’t throttled. T-Mobile does throttle Amazon Prime Video as well as the others. This happens 24/7 and this is a major concern for the FCC after they repealed net neutrality.

LG is teasing a dual-display phone: the same or another one?
LG stated a few months ago that it was too early to launch a foldable phone. Now they’ve been teasing the LG G8X ThinQ that may bring dual display support. But now we have a new teaser that claims that dual is better and shows a 180 degree figure as well as a phone that seems to bring two displays as well as one at the back. This could just be the V60, we’ll see at IFA.
