VZW and TMO considering "toll free" data plans

I think it could be a goid idea if done right. It would also be easier if it was done by your big hitters(with pay service already).

 

So netflix adds 1 or 2 dollars for unlimited mobile streaming. Or like pandora $1 for unlimited streaming.

Makes sense since a heavy hitter like netflix pays like 5 cent a gb, compaired to verizon and att hitting users at $10 a gb.

Unless Netflix is willing to change it's billing system and only charge customers on those carriers that have toll free data, then I don't think it should be done. No sense punishing all of us for the crazy ideas of the 3 carriers that cancelled true unlimited data plans.

    • T-Mobile is asking FCC for approval to obtain Watch TV 2.5 spectrum in Ohio to meet its 5G rural merger obligations in 29 Ohio and 2 Indiana counties. https://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsEntry/attachments/attachmentViewRD.jsp?applType=search&fileKey=1979344942&attachmentKey=21484155&attachmentInd=applAttach This implies that T-Mobile will aggressively go after 2.5 rural spectrum in the upcoming FCC auction 108 even more than I thought.
    • I'm still getting Band 26 and Band 41 from keep sites in Crown Heights and Bay Ridge. I haven't seen any Band 25 though. I'm starting to think T-Mobile shut down Sprint's PCS spectrum here. I wonder if we'll get 5MHz Band 25 + 5MHz n25 carrier or if we'll just get 2 5MHz n25 carriers.
    • Still seeing strong T-Mobile HSPA+ and some weak Sprint B26 (311-490) in the north Bedstuy area Sprint eNB 6705 (40.70091884265787,-73.94344902067445) is broadcasting the keep PLMN Sprint eNB 899078/899079 (40.83022854043739,-73.94830306659236) has been converted, though the site has not yet been lit up. The density up there is pretty insane - 400ft from the site just North, 600ft from the site just South. Spotted another Dish site near City College (1606 Amsterdam Ave). This is not a former Sprint site, and the neighboring Sprint site (across the street) has not been decommissioned. Still not seeing the Dish PLMN in this area.
    • Just cycled through where I'm sitting...not near any keep sites...and 25/26 don't exist...locking to them but.ps me over to AT&T MFBI (why TMo isn't doing 2/25 MFBI here I don't know...maybe Nokia equipment can't do it?). TMo B41 is visible, but Sprint isn't. Two nights ago I saw 10 MHz Sprint B41 at the top of the band. Not sure whether that's live today.
    • Dish has base stations and antennas already set up for n26, and phones are starting to come out supporting that. Yes, it's a 5x5 patchwork, but it can basically provide an anchor for higher-frequency NR that augments n71, which in many places is only 5x5 on Dish.
