Does T-Mobile’s announcement that many streaming video services will not count against data plans violate net neutrality rules?
T-Mo announced that it will not count almost 25 streaming services (including Netflix, Hulu. HBO, Spotify, Apple Music and more) against its customers data plans. Cool. However, don’t net neutrality rules prohibit treating one type of data differently than others? Obviously, a carrier not counting pretty all major streaming sources against a customer’s data plan is not the type of thing that net neutrality is intended to prevent, but still it seems indisputable that since not every streaming music/video service is included in this policy, it is treating some data preferentially.
