music app: does streaming data count for monthly data plan?
Edited by Phil-101 on Feb 28, 2012 at 10:22:40 AM

hello,

i'm a swiss student doing a research on how mobile providers in the world deal with data charge and self-offered streaming services (i.e. not external services, like youtube or pandora).

 

i would like to know if data used in your app at&t music does have an impact in terms of charge on the amount of data available for users every month

 

when you launched the service, in 2010 [third party link removed] users with unlimited data plan had just to pay a monthy fee for the service (so, i assume since it was part of unlimited data plan, data weren't counting any way).

 

no that unlimited plans are gone, what is the situation?

thanks in advance for letting me make some progress in my research! Smiley Happy

Any service, whether it's an AT&T offered one or a third-party service, is treated the same as far as data usage goes. Tiered users pay for overages, and unlimited users face throttling when they cross a certain usage threshold.

Not necessarily. Verizon users who had unlimited data on their 3G or 4G LTE smartphones were grandfathered in after they started their caps.

 

Sprint remains the only one of the major wireless carriers with true unlimited data. With Sprint, customers can download as much as they want without overages, caps, throttling, etc. etc.
