Remember last week when YouTube accused T-Mobile of throttling video traffic? T-Mobile’s reply: it wasn’t throttling the video traffic but simply optimizing content for mobile consumption.
The FCC will be keeping a close eye on T-Mobile with Binge-On’s controversial nature against Net Neutrality since the service technically puts a kind of preference on a certain type of traffic than all other traffic.
Remember, YouTube was the one who told the Wall Street Journal that T-Mobile was throttling YouTube’s traffic. Saying that while reducing charges is good for customers, throttling traffic without customers’ knowledge doesn’t justify the former.
T-Mobile clams the problem with its inability to correctly identify YouTube traffic is the system that flags video traffic to be exempt from the data allotments. Since the Q&A at the Uncarrier event, the point of implementing a better system to tell video traffic apart came up, T-Mobile answered that there are still some kinks to work out in the process of telling video traffic apart.
Sadly for me, my phone connects to my TV via HDMI so my unlimited data may get throttled, and playing on a big screen for a small size frame is no so good quality.
To control. When they throttle your speeds, that means they can reduce your LTE speeds down to 3G speeds. Say if you watch a 1080p video on YouTube, when they throttle your connection, the quality will force the video to play at 480p instead.
