FCC Queries AT&T, T-Mobile, Comcast Over Free Streaming
The FCC has sent letters to AT&T, T-Mobile, and Comcast seeking more details about various programs offered by the three companies that allow customers to stream select services at no cost. AT&T offers sponsored data to some customers in limited form. The data is paid for by third parties and customers are not charged against their data plans when using those specific apps and/or services. T-Mobile allows customers to stream music and video content over its LTE network without impacting their monthly data allotments via its Music Freedom and Binge On programs. Comcast has a similar offering for its wired broadband service. At issue is whether or not the zero-rated services violate net neutrality or if they conflict with the "Commission's goal of maintaining a free and open internet while incentivizing innovation and investment from all sources." The companies said they will comply with the FCC's request while maintaining the position that they are not guilty of any wrongdoing.
