Binge On? More Like Eat at a Slow Pace

Jeremy Gillula from the EFF:

The first result of our test confirms that when Binge On is enabled, T-Mobile throttles all HTML5 video streams to around 1.5Mps, even when the phone is capable of downloading at higher speeds, and regardless of whether or not the video provider enrolled in Binge On.

This just makes me sick. I was worried that Net Neutrality didn’t mean anything before, but this is proof. I didn’t like this initiative when I first heard about, but now, I despise it.
