T-Mobile US CEO reacts to reception of Binge On

Tuesday 12 January 2016 | 22:17 CET | News
In an open letter to consumers about the Binge On service, T-Mobile US chairman and CEO John Legere writes that he is following up on users' reaction to the service launched in November "to help clarify a few things before we can move on." Legere says, "We invented Binge On to provide customers with an easy and effective way to stretch their data bucket. Knowing that the number one (and climbing) use of data out there is video, it was obviously the natural place to focus." He also insisted that T-Mobile remained committed to net neutrality.
