AT&T's 'Stream Saver' Doesn't Quite Mimic T-Mobile's BingeOn
AT&T said it is preparing a new service that will allow customers to stream more video content over the wireless network and conserve their data. Stream Saver, set to become available early next year, will downgrade streamed video to 480p so it chews through less wireless data. AT&T said it plans to alert customers when Stream Saver is available, and customers will be able to switch it on or off at will. Once customers activate it, all content Stream Saver can identify as video will be downgraded to DVD quality. Stream Saver does not impact the quality of music streamed from services such as Spotify. Moreover, Stream Saver does not allow for unlimited video watching via LTE; rather, it is a tool designed to help people reduce their data consumption when needed while still allowing them to enjoy video content over the network. By way of comparison, T-Mobile's BingeOn service allows for unlimited video streaming from select providers over LTE without impacting users' monthly data allotment.

Qualcomm and T-Mobile have successfully completed the first data call using Qualcomm's X55 modem, the first 5G chip for phones to support all 5G networks to be launched in the US in 2019, including T-Mobile's band 71 (600 MHz). All 5G phones currently on the market in the US use the X50 chip, which only supports mmWave bands and TDD bands such as Sprint's band 41.
It is a start for AT&T
It will save on my data usage and so what the quality is DVD they do not need to see a video in HD.
