Binge On Gave me a Data Hangover!



May 2, 2016



T-Mobile’s Binge On promises free content that doesn’t count against your mobile data allowance, but does it? Wireless Butler found some strange anomalies, and in fact it appears customers are paying for “Free Data” when commercials are viewed; it’s a common trick called data scavenging. So in essence, with Binge On, the customer is helping T-Mobile double dip on advertising revenue. That kind of binging is a sure recipe for a data hangover!

If you’ve noticed strange things afoot at the Binge buffet, share them on the Wireless Butler Facebook page, or email!
