But only if you're porting your numbers from AT&T, which runs DIRECTV NOW. The Un-carrier wants to stick it to a big conglomerate.
The Un-carrier is in the Electronic Frontier Foundation's ire once again as net neutrality concerns are raised against its newest (and only) data plan.
ABC, Apple Music, Disney, Fox Now, Nat Geo TV and a few extra new ones help T-Mobile Binge On officially secure more than 100 supporting services.
That's two lines for $100. Trials are going on in four markets - Boston, Milwaukee, Oklahoma City and Phoenix. Sprint's aiming for T-Mobile's gut.
Northeastern University researchers have spotted a wide exploit in how T-Mobile determines which content is free and which will be charged for.

The two carriers have absolute data caps with difficult to access unlimited data plans. Netflix reduced the quality of streams to those customers.
Is the Un-carrier getting stingy? Its CFO talked with investors about how it needs to better its network. Here's where Binge On and unlimited data cross.

The company expects to be up there in 5G-land with the rest of the carriers. But hey, how about that Verizon?

Manage your T-Mobile Binge On settings with expanded short code controls, as new video providers sign on.
T-Mobile, AT&T and Comcast have had their time with the FCC to explain their zero-rated data programs. The FCC called those meetings "productive."
Weak "I'm sorry you were offended" John Legere EFF apology may be the best we get, as CEO continues to defend Binge On.
CEO John Legere announced that 14 new video providers have signed on to the zero-rated data program and goes after critics of it, including Google.
T-Mobile won't say it's throttling data speeds for all video for its Binge On program, but if you're irked by the EFF's findings, here's how to get out.
This development may put the FCC’s meeting with T-Mobile in a new light — and perhaps the meetings with AT&T and Comcast as well. After YouTube took first spat against T-Mobile’s Binge On program that zero-rated end users’ costs for access to 480p video. That’s so long as video providers ask to be on the program, which is free to participate in.
YouTube was and is not a partner in the program and the company is claiming that its video is being “throttled” down to 480p. T-Mobile responded with a different term, “downgraded,” [...]
When a company acknowledges a “less flattering” way of addressing spats with another company, you’re likely to raise an eyebrow or two — no more, though. T-Mobile subscribers using the eyes below their brows to browse their YouTube subscriptions might have noticed their viewing on the go stuck at 480p.
YouTube used the word “throttling” in its reading of the act to T-Mobile via the Wall Street Journal. It’s not one of the 24 video service partners that signed on with T-Mobile’s Binge On program that zero-rates data fees for end users [...]
Federal Communications Commission chairman Tom Wheeler previously spoke of T-Mobile’s new Binge On service rather kindly, calling the paid-for streaming data perk “highly innovative and highly competitive.” The FCC is also eyeing AT&T as it has a Data Perks program that trades filling sponsored surveys for up to an extra gigabyte on your account each month. And in those veins, Comcast has introduced an unlimited access “Stream TV” program that is described as “a cable service that only works in the customer’s home.”
What's the FCC T-Mobile Binge On position? Chairman Tom Wheeler makes some very positive-sounding statements about the new service.
T-Mobile. The rebel in pink. The one that asks questions from everyone else first and then does things without asking itself first. At least, it seems, it doesn’t ask itself some important questions. For its tenth Un-carrier move, CEO John Legere decided to do a thing — a solid, supposedly — for its customers by making video streaming within certain parameters free.
Turns out that executives of two other US cell service providers are asking questions about that move. AT&T’s Ralph de la Vega and Sprint’s Tarek Robbiati were both at the Wells Fargo Securities [...]
