Report Summary:

T-Mobile sets itself up for competitive growth in Q4 holiday shopping season, extending its Un-carrier challenger “customer advocate” strategy with Un-carrier X by introducing Binge On zero-rated, optimized video streaming to address the pain point of watch video over cellular networks. Binge On challenges AT&T’s and Verizon’s mobile data pricing approaches. While the absence of YouTube and Twitch in the Binge On portfolio could be addressed in future, the exclusion of social ad-funded video streaming apps, of which usage is rising, should be reconsidered.
