    So.. Tmobile has announced this "Binge On" plan which will mean that streaming services like Netflix, Hulu etc will all not count towards the data usage:

    What do you guys make of this? And what does this mean to the people who truly believe in Net neutrality??

    Sounds like T-Mo has worked out a backroom deal with these video streaming services. It's a win-win for all *IF* the network can handle the traffic.

    I don't watch streaming videos so doesn't matter to me. But I do the boost to data.

    Short term I don't think it matters too much, but in the long run I can see the carriers using this model to charge different amounts depending on what site you want to visit.
