Its last big announcement was Binge On, which exempts services like Netflix, Hulu, and others from data caps, but YouTube has now started complaining that T-Mobile throttles all video regardless of its participation in the program.

Verizon Is Offering 2GB Of Additional Data For Life If You Sign Up For Its Largest Data Buckets Before January 6th

Verizon completely revamped its plans a few months ago when it ditched contracts with the aim of making the options easier to understand. Verizon's data is still more expensive than some carriers, but there's a holiday promotion that might make the cost more justifiable.

Eleven More Streaming Services Added To T-Mobile Music Freedom Including TuneIn Premium

T-Mobile announced a big expansion to its Music Freedom deal today with 11 more streaming services. That means you won't use any of your data allotment to listen to these 11 services, some of which you might even have heard of. Really, most of them are pretty obscure. Good on T-Mobile for keeping Music Freedom open, I guess.

AT&T Launches Data Perks, A Service That Offers Miniscule Amounts Of Extra Data For Completing Partner Offers

You might recall almost two years ago when AT&T started working on a sponsored data program. The idea was companies could pay AT&T to exempt certain services from your data cap. AT&T has now rolled out a different take on sponsored data as an app called Data Perks. By completing offers, you earn teeny tiny buckets of data that can be applied to your monthly plan. If you sign up now, you get a whopping 25MB of data to start. Twenty-five whole megabytes!

T-Mobile Un-Carrier 8.0 Adds Data Rollover For All Simple Choice Plans, Starts With 10GB Of Bonus Data

T-Mobile's latest ploy to steal customers away from the other national carriers is a big one. Starting in January, the carrier will no longer "confiscate" your unused data at the end of each billing cycle. Instead, that data will rollover and be kept in your "Data Stash" for one year. Sure, they'll confiscate it at that point, but that's a lot of extra data. Plus, you get 10GB of bonus data to start.

Sprint Will Begin Throttling The Top 5% Of Data Users In Congested Markets

As other carriers have ended unlimited data in recent years, Sprint has held firm. This was perhaps the saving grace of its network as Sprint struggled to catch up to other carriers in the race for LTE coverage. According to a report from Fierce Wireless, Sprint is going to be pulling back a bit on unlimited 3G/4G data for the biggest users on its network. Beginning as soon as next month in some markets, anyone who falls in the top 5% of data consumers could potentially be throttled down to ensure others can get connectivity.
