More On Video Streaming: FreeBee, Sponsored Data, Etc.
Well, it turns out T-Mobile isn't the only provider offering data-charge-exempt streaming video for select content providers. Verizon and AT&T offer services where content providers pay for the data charges rather than the end user. Verizon's service is called "FreeBee Data," and AT&T's is creatively called "AT&T Sponsored Data." Sprint has yet to offer a similar service on its own network, but they do offer data-free music streaming for both Virgin and Boost MVNOs. So, with that, here are preliminary (refer to previous T-Mobile "Binge On, Binge Off" blog for why this is preliminary) estimated streaming video coverage maps for the other 3 major providers in California.
