Verizon, longtime enemy of net neutrality, may soon exempt its video app from data caps
By Zach Epstein
Verizon has spent a tremendous amount of money and other resources over the years lobbying against net neutrality. It should be no surprise then that the carrier will reportedly soon follow the lead of rivals T-Mobile and Comcast, which have recently begun casting the spirit and letter of net neutrality laws aside in launching programs that give preferential treatment to some Web services by allowing them to stream music and videos that do not count against users' data caps.
T-Mobile does it with "Binge On," Comcast does it with its own video service "Stream TV," and now it looks like Verizon will soon do it with its Go90 video app and any other service partners willing to cough up some cash.
